    I recently tried a beer by Dark Horse Brewing called Reign in Blood Orange Pale Ale. I loved it. Does anyone have any suggestions about any others I should/shouldn't try?

    If you're in Michigan, Short's Anniversary Ale this year was based on blood orange. If you can't find it, let me know. I have one or two left. Also, I have to think DFH has at least 1-2 beers featuring it.

    Flat 12 has several awesome Blood Orange beers but they are draft only.

    I had 2013 Allagash Fluxus last night on tap and liked it alot. A porter with a choco orange flavor, aroma. A couple weeks ago I had Thomas Creek Castaway Chocolate Orange IPA and didn't get much chocolate or orange (Think it is orange peel not blood orange), was just an OK IPA. I missed Elysian Superfuzz on tap which looks like it would be a decent blood orange pale.

    Short's Anniversary beer every year is a blood orange wheatwine. It is one of my favorites.

    Hale Street Tavern in Beverly Farms, MA had a really good blood orange beer last year, made exclusively for them by Cody Brewing. Not sure if it is available now or for sale anywhere else.

    Friendship & Reunion was absolutely incredible, one of my favorite HF hoppy brews. My suggestion is to go back in time a few months and try that. I know, sometimes I seem almost too helpful...

    Just had that last night at one of Elysian's pubs. Wow what a tasty, balanced, thirst-quenching beer.

    I know it was said but a local brewery on long island called great south bay makes a phenomenal blood orange pale ale... it won N.Y. tap awards for best new beer and a bunch of other awards... only problem is its not distributed outside of l.I. I believe

    Slumbrew Happy Sol is the only blood orange beer I know that is bottled regularly around here.

    I actually added some Blood Orange juice (Freshly squeezed, not some store bought sugar mix) to an IPA one time when I wasn't super impressed with the particular IPA and it was pretty good!

    I've only had Grassroots Brewing Brother Soigné, which isn't too easy to find, but that's the only suggestion i can make

    Funky Buddha Brewery down here in Florida just brewed a new Blood Orange IPA. I haven't tried it yet - hopefully this weekend, but I hear it's good.

    For something different, I'd say the Breakside Brewing (Portland) Blood Orange Cascadian Orange. Counter-intuitive as heck but delicious.

    @jcb7472 - had the Blood Orange IPA (More Moro) last weekend. The aroma is amazing. Beer is a little on the tart side for an IPA, but I really enjoyed it nonetheless. A definite must try at least once.

    Thought that was brewed with tangelos. God I love that beer.

    The new Fluxus has a very dry character, but is quality stuff.

    Whatever you do, avoid Lambeek wants Blood Orange.

    It depends where in MI you are, but if you ever make it out to Toledo, they have a nice blood orange imperial witbier. It's kind of unconventional, but it's a very good beer, though i don't know how you feel about Belgians.
