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.
