809. Bissell Brothers Brewing Reciprocal

Bissell Brothers ReciprocalAnother hop forward beer from Bissell Brothers Brewing. This one comes in at 7.3% which is a big increase in ABV from Baby Genius (4%) and Diavoletto (2.6%) and only marginally less than Swish at 8%. So far I have really enjoyed all of Bissell’s hoppy offerings and not as impressed with Seed or i-Lucky.

Reciprocal may be the murkiest beer I have tried. The only other that comes to mind is Lotus Eater from Candia Road Brewing that I had 3 years ago. This beer looks like a combination of orange and grapefruit juice with a nice white head. Aroma has loads of citrus, pineapple, mango. Taste follows with lots of grapefruit, mango, pineapple and just enough of a malt base to keep things in check. Minimal bitterness in the finish and the 16 ounce can was gone in no time.

Another excellent beer from Bissell Brothers and I believe this beer is now part of their normal brew schedule so I look forward to more Reciprocal in the future.
