While this is a great beer I actually prefer Substance and Reciprocal. Lux is interesting in its own right since its a rye beer. Perhaps Swish is higher rated since it is so much harder to get. Regardless Bissell Brothers are making some great beers.

Been a couple years since I last tried Swish, it was too astringent then, but it tastes damn close to perfect now. Starting from the back, there's a balanced citrus bitter finish. Moderate dankness and a hint of savory vegetable with the juicy fruit punch. The aroma is more floral, but still backed by big fruity hops. Lots and lots of delicious, well balanced hops.

OK, this stuff is amazing. Pours a shade of gold that immediately lets you know you're in for a treat. Smell is actually fairly mild compared to how rich in flavor it is, with notes of general dankness, and some sweet fruitiness that becomes more apparent as it warms up. Mouthfeel is incredible, it's somehow smooth AND substantial. The flavor lands on your tongue with a bang, then leaves slowly, and gradually, as if it was melting, but wanted to take its time. One of the best beers I've ever had.
