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.

Had on tap at haymarket. Poured into a goblet and pours dark orange color with a good small head. Powerful and deep aromas of pine cones, resin, navel oranges, hops and loads of citrus and guava. There are good layers of aromas in this with the fresh hops being upfront and notable. Full bodied with a really good and smooth feel. Not as layered, but the notes of guava, hops, pine cones and resin are still delicious. Was offered this up as an alternative to the normal mathias by the bartender. I absolutely loved this and it is an amazing Imperial IPA.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 27, 2012
On tap at brewpub. Poured a cloudy light orange color with a dense white head. The smell was all citrus, with big funkiness and tropical fruit. The flavor is a bit more subdued than the smell, with a blend of fresh hops, some piney bitter backbone and a touch of sweet malt creeping through the hops. The mouthfeel is thick and full with a long oily finish.

brian60625 (742) - Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2012
This was the best I’ve had from Haymarket so far. Lots of floral hops and a big flavor kick that doesn’t give you a bitter slap in the face. Very smooth actually, and the abv wasn’t noticeable at all.

Hammy78 (725) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2012
4 oz pour at the Haymarket brewpub in Chicago Illinois. Pours a hazy copperish colour, white head and lacing. Aroma is sweet, a little hop and nice fruits like orange and grapefruit. Tastes a little bready actually, but the hops champion through for some citrus bitterness.

hombrepalo (1818) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2011
4oz pour. A little darker than expected caramel color pour with a nice sized pillowy head floating on top. Huge resinous citrus hop notes are mixed well with some tropical fruit and more dank dank dank. Flavor is a bit more malt forward than I figured. Aggressively bitter finish, great carbonation for the style. Very nice.
