Funky Buddha Brewery "More Moro Blood Orange IPA"
12 oz. brown glass bottle, "BOTTLED ON 05/28/15 050515"
$3 @ Trader Joe's #766, Tampa, FL

Appearance: Hazy deep amber-orange body beneath a full head of frothy antique-white foam. The head retention and lacing are both very good.

Aroma: Citrusy, with a bit of chalky pith, and a moderate golden malt base.

Flavor: Juicy and mildly tart orange upfront, followed by some malt as it warms across the tongue. Orange, pineapple, berries. The bitterness steps in at the swallow but it's not bold; nor is it particularly needed as the tartness of the juice balances it, and there's not that much malt to deal with either. It finishes dry, just slightly tart, and mildly mineralish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light in body and gently crisp with a fine-bubbled, moderate carbonation. I initially thought that perhaps a bit more carbonation would help, but given the fruitiness I think it's much nicer as it is. Quite smooth.

Overall: Quite refreshing! I've sampled other blood orange beers and found them to be two-sided, with the fruit showing up almost as an additive atop the beer, but this is very focused and appears seamless. Worth trying!

Orange-copper brew, fairly clear. Modest pale head with poor retention.

Citrusy aroma, slightly tart; very little else presented.

Flavor follows: remarkable tartness for an IPA, reflecting the blood orange juice. Hops tend to meld into the background behind (with?) the juice. A touch of yeast esters come through early; slightly piney hop notes are barely noticeable starting mid-palate.

Lively yet smooth feel; medium to medium-light bodied; very drinkable past the initial tartness.

Not bad; reminiscent of Grapefruit Sculpin, but more fruit juice based vice hops.

Yep it is a very fruity IPA, maybe more of a fruit beer. But it is a very enjoyable one. Fruit up front with a nice IPA bitterness at the end. I liked this a lot.

Almost seems like they threw the orange peel in during the brewing process.

Bottle. No code date. Appearance: Golden with a reddish orange hue, clear, and a thick, frothy khaki head that lingers. Aroma: Toasty malt, citrus rind, earthy, herbal. A hint of citrusy hop, but minimal. Taste: Wow, this is interesting. Starts with a bitter, acidic punch of grapefruit juice, a punch of bitterness, and then finishes with some toasty, breast malt. Kinda like drinking an IPA in reverse. Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderate carbonation. Finish: strong lingering grapefruit and orange rind tartness, and strong bitterness. Powerful finish. Overall: A very interesting IPA. The use of blood orange combined with the citrusy hops make for a powerful acidic citrus background flavor. Malt backbone is there, but the tartness and bitterness dominate the overall taste profile. Pretty tasty.

WARNING: This is not an American IPA. You cannot be further from it. I dont care what the brewery says. This is a fruit beer 110%. A very good one I might add but just that. Amazing fruit beer, worst IPA ever.

Not sure what changed but this is not the More Moro of old. I'm a fan of blood orange and citrus in general and this beer just didn't have the citrus I expected.

Maybe it was the blood orange, but didn't work for me and was very average.

Beer has a thin head that leaves rings, with a clear amber red type appearance. Heavy citrus smell. Heavy blood orange taste in the front with the hops hitting you on the back. For an ipa this beer is not over the top hoppy and is a good medium for someone who wants to dabble in trying ipa's. So happy they have started to offer in bottles.

Flat, plain, and boring. Has the head of an average adjunct lager. Almost gross smelling. Definately not worth the price point.

What the hell did I just drink? Tasted like a mimosa. Pass on this.

Funky buddha More Moro
12oz bottle into pint glass
Bottled on: 5/26/15


A: Pours a slightly hazy golden copper with less than 1 fingers width of off white colored head. Although the head is small it has great retention and leaves lots of lacing. 4.25

S: Tons of citrus notes, including orange and grapefruit, subtle tropical fruits, some sweet malts to balance. Very nice 4.25

T: Like the nose there's tons of citrus; orange, grapefruit and lemon zest. Decent amount of bitterness. Enough sweetness to balance. 4.25

M/D: Medium body, carbonation appropriate, good drinkability. 4.25

O: Very good beer, a little one dimensional, but quite enjoyable nonetheless. Would drink again any time. 4.25

There was no discernible orange flavor, whatsoever. Dank, flat, gross. I can't believe they would release this batch, especially as the "introductory Orlando" batch. I felt ripped off by FB on this one. I get the sense that their desire for rapid growth is a priority over quality control. I will proceed with caution on any new FB releases going forward.

Sampled at SAVOR 2015. Didn't get much blood orange character. Nice clean and bitter, but really not that delicious.

Re-reviewed out of a fresh bottle. A beautiful looking beer with a great nose that's loaded with citrus and malt. The taste and mouthfeel fall short though with an cloying and acrid fruit pith finish.

Meh. At four bucks a bottle I expected a revelation but it was disappointing. I would have classified it more as a Belgian instead of IPA as it was missing the hop bite of an American IPA. Good beer for sure, but there are many others to drink at this price and style.

A- It pours a honey golden color with a thin, pure white head. The head fades fast, leaving a thin ring of foam with decent lacing.

S- The aroma threw me for a loop. There is a lot of citrus. It almost comes across as soapy.

T- more citrus. Lots of orange. It tastes like you diluted an IPA with orange juice. Astringent citrus peel bitterness in the finish.

M- refreshing. Light bodied, slightly prickly carbonation.

O- interesting and odd. Glad I tried it. Not recommended for those seeking a traditional IPA.

I live in southwest Florida, somewhat parallel to the Funky Buddha Brewery on the east coast of Florida.

This beer just showed up in my nearby liquor store. And this is how I explained it to my liquor store owner:

Dogfishhead 60' IPA is the best IPA you sell. On a scale of 1 - 10, it is a 10.

New Belgium Ranger IPA is the next best IPA you sell. It is a 7 on a scale of 10.

Funky Buddha Hop Gun IPA is a 5 on a scale of 10.

Funky Buddha More Moro Blood Orange IPA is a 1 on a scale of 10. It does not taste like an IPA, at any temperature. I can not taste any hops, only orange.

This is not an IPA. Consequently, it should be moved to another classification.

New recipe bad outcome. It's a shame cause having this several times before and liking it, at $4 a bottle I will not buy again.

An absolutely delicious IPA. Very prominent blood orange taste with a burst of citrus hops. Could drink all day.
