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

Why is this retired? I just had one on draft at the brewery on Saturday, Feb 28, 2015. Very citrusy.

12oz served in a snifter glass, on-tap at Funky Buddha in Oakland Park, 5/21/2014.

A- Dark orange-copper body, half finger white head, not much retention or lacing. Really unsure about this one initially based on first impressions.

S- Smells like straight up orange juice, with some floral notes and orange zest. Not complex, but certainly very interesting.

F- Orange juice without the pulp, some crackery pale malt, orange rinds, no real indication of bitterness aside from a trace of floral and citrus hops on the backend. A slight bit of alcohol reminds you that you're not drinking OJ.

M- Medium bodied, not bitter at all, literally drinks like pulpless OJ. A bit resinous, not particularly dry, much like OJ can be.

O- Very interesting IPA, I get the concept but this was more like a cocktail with orange juice rather than an IPA. Enjoyable to drink nonetheless!

Thanks to rudzud

light creamy head, decent lacing even though smaller head, deep murky blood orange pinkish creamy color.

Nose is just all pure blood orange, juicy fresh squeezed blood orange, nice citrusy mild grapefruit like hops still come through, little rind, mild creamy orange creamscicle

Taste is interesting, def that big blood orange juice and flesh again, but a rind bitterness and little musty hop vinous like thing. The rind bitterness really takes off with a little earthy sap like perfumey note, fair bitterness, into a little wheat like grainy cracker malt, mild sweetness. Finish is drier little sticky, big spicy rind bitterness, more blood orange and little grapefruit rind. little creamy orange creamscicle.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

Overall good but mixed, phenomenal nose, but the taste dropped off a bit, but still nice, that crazy rind bitterness seems to steal the show unfortunately.

Received in a trade, shared with JLindros and Threelions.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a murky blood orange juice hue with a thin head that fades to leave thin wisps.

S - Aromas of blood orange galore, huge huge orange creamsicle, light vanilla, grapefruit hops, faint caramel malts. Glorious blood orange.

T - Taste is light alcohol, blood orange is there in light bitterness, juicy orange, faint creamy light vanilla, faint grapefruit bitter, Huge rind notes kind of takes away from the blood orange but this is still delicious.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, clean, very drinkable.

O - Overall this beer was insanely aromatic, crazy. Very wonderful representation of blood orange in a beer.

I personally tend to dislike "frutty" beers. More Moro is an interesting combination of an IPA hoppiness and taste of blood oranges. Color is beautiful and inviting. Aromas of orange/grapefruit/hopps are well balanced and inviting. It feels refreshing. I'll keep coming back for it on tap... but I bought a small stash for home!

Pity 2015 version is different... not as good as it was in 2014... now available in bottles... maybe it will get better...

This is an interesting beer. Once it is poured, it has a reddish color, most likely the blood orange. It is cloudy. Not too much carbonation. Aroma reveals a straight forward citrus smell. Very little hops smell, strange for an IPA but since this is a blood orange IPA, it is acceptable.

Taste is a complete different story. This is basically an orange juice, a bit more sour and bitter than usual. It could also be a mimosa with dry champagne. I am guessing a mix of citrus was used, like grapefruit, orange, and blood orange. It is a thin beer, nice IPA. Very little hoppy flavor.

I definitively felt healthy drinking this beer.

On tap at the brewery. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange body. Almost reddish. White head that settles to a thin collar and a few islands.

Smell - Tons of grapefruit. Orange and grapefruit aromas. Some pale malt barely comes through.

Taste - Here it's more distinctly orange. Still has some grapefruit character, but it's got an orange sweetness. It's bitter almost immediately. Very bitter in the finish. Some pale malt again makes a meager appearance.

Mouthfeel - Medium body and quite bitter. Citrus pith bitterness, not hop.

Overall - It doesn't taste like diacetyl!! The orange either covers it up or they made a good batch of Hop Gun. I'm thinking the former.

This beer sounded amazing.
An Orange IPA? Yes please, I love citrusy IPAs.
But, it wasn't what I expected at all when I tasted it...Perhaps I just don't like orange that much, thought I did, not after having this beer though.
It was just way too bittering up front and back, and I'm a guy who can drink a Ruination without a problem. I had problems finishing this beer....I don't know, it was more like the type of bittering it had up front just...it just tasted bad.
Wish I could explain it more but this beer was not for me.
I was expecting a citrusy hop gun, but this was just a different beast all together.
But I think I'm the minority, most people I've talked to enjoyed the beer a lot so at least give it a try.

Holy blood oranges batman! Have had this a couple times on draft in my founders snifter. From what I have been told, the more moro are the deepest color of the blood oranges, or something to that effect. Beer pours out with quite an orange hue to it, looks amazing with a nice 2 finger head on it. The smell is quite amazing, close your eyes and imagine a big tall glass of blood orange juice, something i have in the fridge at all times. The taste of the blood orange is there, along with some of the hop gun bitterness that likes to linger in the mouth. Overall yet another amazing treatment the boys at the buddha have done, delicious!
