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.

Funky Buddha Brewery - More Moro. 7.7% ABV. 12oz snifter ordered at the brewery.

Look: Pale hazy orange body, arriving with a thin white head which ends up as a ring of lacing.

Smell: Sweet and tangy citrus on the nose, and nothing else really.

Feel: Light to medium body, with a lot of lively carbonation.

Taste: Sweet and tangy citrus fruit, along with some light bitter hops. Finishes sweet and bitter.

Overall: Very sweet IPA, with a little bit of hop presence near the end. I'm not sure if the other batches weren't as good, or everyone else just has too high of standards, but I thought this was amazing. My brother described as looking, smelling, and tasting like Sunny D, and he's right.
