Summer is here which means a proliferation of fruit-tinged beers will hit the market in the next few months. Funky Buddha celebrates the marriage of fruit and hops with its next bottle release - More Moro Blood Orange IPA.
Funky Buddha infuses moro blood oranges into their IPA to create the More Moro Orange IPA. A moro is an American varietal of blood orange that has deep, crimson red flesh and a mellow citrus flavor. The result is a brew that's described as "deeply citrusy and fruity, with a hop-forward nose, sticky malt body, and long grapefruit hop finish" wi th a 7.7% ABV.
Funky Buddha will release this special brew at their Oakland Park brewery on April 29 at 6 p.m. The More Moro will be available in 22 oz. bottles ($12) and will be limited to one per person. After 9 p.m., any additional bottles remaining will be opened back up for sale.
In addition to the More Moro, Funky Buddha will offer some other special beers in the tap room, including a passionfruit berlinerweiss.
More Moro will also be available on draft at bars and restaurants throughout South Florida by the end of the month. Orange you glad?
