COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In honor of Officer Mathias Degan, the first of 8 of Chicago’s Finest to lose their lives in the line of duty during the Haymarket Affair. Copious amounts of Citra Hops deliver wonderful citrus and mango notes. At 10% ABV, we feel Mathias is a proper representation of the strength and courage of our Boys in Blue. Raise one to thank the fine Officers of the Chicago Police Department for their sacrifice.

A version of Uber Mathias is Mathias dry hopped with 10 lbs of Cascade per barrel.

Sample at the brewpub. Clear reddish-orange color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit, hops and malt. Medium-bodied and somewhat chewy with flavors of mango, citrus, resiny hops and malt. The finish is fruity with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

This one poured a lighter orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of alcohol, fruity hops and lgiht caramel. Flavor was similar, over the top booze, decent hop profile though.

monkeychugg55 (841) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Dark copper pour with a small white head. The aroma is amazingly hoppy. Lots of pine and tropical fruit, some herbal notes as well. The flavor follows suit, adding some sweet caramel malt that puts this on a slightly sweeter side of balance and dangerously drinkable. Wonderful IPA.

If I was a UFC fighter, my entrance music would be the Divinyls "I Touch Myself." Psychological warfare, my friend
