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.

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.
