COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A moro is an American varietal of blood orange that has deep, crimson red flesh and a mellow citrus flavor. Our More Moro IPA piles on the "moro" for an overload of ripe, fresh blood orange flavor. Deeply citrusy and fruity, with a hop-forward nose, sticky malt body, and long grapefruit hop finish.

Very nice. Blood orange addition really pops out and makes this one heckuva easy drinking ipa with a twist. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, thanks to Heather via wholefoods Winter Park. Pours out a nice orange color with a small off white head. Aroma is of some sweet/lightly tart citrusy blood orange, mild sweet grains and some caramel notes. Taste is complex a lot of sweet citrus blood orange up front some decent citrus hops, bread crusts, caramel malts, and a bitter but also was weet blood orange note in the finish.

Pours orange amber with a smallish white head. Aroma is orange, florals, and a little bit of hops. Smells more like a citrusy wit beer than an IPA. Flavor is acidic orange with some bitter rind and yeast. Medium body...kind of a weird orange juice aftertaste. This beer is alright...I’m all about heavy handed treatment beers...I just don’t think it’s the right move with citrus...the hops are suffocated by the orange in this. I wish it were hoppier with a citrus background.

Not quite a fruit beer, not quite a sour...so almost like a hybrid of those with an IPA. The blood orange gives it tart/sour citrus notes, but sort of offsets the bitterness from the grapefruity hop flavors. Also seems like a strain of yeast (Belgian?) that gives it some wheat characteristics...in flavor and feel. Definitely a unique beer, though seems a little over-rated.

12oz bottle. Mostly clear golden pour. Aroma is slight orange without the citrus. Taste follows with hop taste but not bitter at all. Really drinkable good beer.

Bottle shared by Tom - thanks! Deep orange pour with a small head. Very heavy on the blood orange, very light on bitterness and a little light on carbonation. Tasty.

12 oz bottle. This one pours a burnt orange color and crowned by a smooth off white head of foam. The foam slowly settles to a thin film and leaves scant lines of lace behind. The aroma is really nice showing notes of juicy blood orange, citrus hop bitterness, and a nice drying character from the toasted bread malt base. The flavor is just as good with more of the juicy blood orange, a touch of grapefruit, ample bitterness from the hops followed by a dry, toasted biscuit finish. The blood orange goes perfectly with the hops lending the perfect mix of sweet and bitter. The body is medium and smooth with balanced carbonation that leads to a dry, bitter sweet finish. Really nice and tasty IPA. A great beer from the Buddha.

12 oz. bottle from Homer321- thanks, Sean! Pours a clear orange color with a bright golden hue to it and a smallish eggshell white head that settles into a few wisps of film and a few spots of thin lace after a slim ring. Aroma of blood oranges, sugar cane, sweet malts, straw, berry fruits, and a hint of grass and florals. Not as hop-forward as advertised. Flavor of oranges and orange peel, wet leaves and hay and grass, flower petals, and sweet malts. Has an initially damp mouthfeel that dries out quickly. Modest carbonation, and a thin body. I don’t know. This one seems to miss the mark a little bit. Some sips were better than others. Tough to rate for that reason.

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.
