Served from tap in a tulip glass at Bigby's Pour House - Rolling Meadows.

Haven't had a chance to grab a BuckleDown brew since a bachelor party at Haymarket last summer, so I had to grab a pint here (and all the better, considering this one has 16 ratings without a single review...real helpful, guys...). It pours a mostly clear amber-brass topped by a half-finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, light Sunny D, light leek, mild biscuit, and a few kisses of pine resin. The taste brings in more of the same, the hops surprisingly not overpowering my tongue (a usual occurrence when it comes to Citra-heavy brews). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a nice DIPA, nothing incredibly special or head-turning, but I'd drink another.

The Citra Clencher is alive and well at hay market. It poured a clear copper with thin white head that left a nice lace. The scent was a disappointment as the pine and citus flare from citra hop was lacking. The taste was evenly balanced with good pine like bitterness at the finish. The Mouthfeel was fuller in body with smooth carbonation. Overall ot is certainly worth a try.

Pours a slighty rusty copper with a plump head of creamy white foam.

Noticeable aroma of Citra hops, but not in your face. Orange, grapefruit, and slight tropical notes.

Grapefruit, guava, orange, and slightly resinous.

Light-medium bodied, medium carbonation, resinous, bitter, citrusy and slightly tropical.

Overall, definitely not your average beer here, a few tweaks and I think BuckleDown could have something amazing.
