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.

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.

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.

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

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 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Update to previous rating, which was a 4.14 from MBCP day on draft.

This bottle version is extremely disappointing. Very artificial taste that doesn't even blend well with the base ipa. I apologize in advance to any regulars I extra this to...for the tick.

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