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.

Tap @ Haymarket with TheAlum. Pours a bit hazy dark orange appearance with a cream colored head. Fairly sweet, light caramel, candy, orange, citrusy hoppy aroma. Carbonation is a bit dull. Peach, citrusy, vanilla, herbal, a touch spicy hoppy flavor. Fairly sweet.

call me sandy sue! .. . deep amber .. . good foam, lacing .. . thick .. oozes sweet sweet sickly hop syrup- too much .. . like drinking maple syrup, the silly people who still like dfh 120 would love this .. . . If I was a UFC fighter, my entrance music would be the Divinyls "I Touch Myself." Psychological warfare, my friend

Like a super version of Algonquin. Dank and piney hops with a touch of citrus rind. A bit too much sweetness for my liking.

Draft at Jerry’s/Division Crawl. Amber with good, frothy, beige head, decent legs / Bright nose of cut pine, weed, citrus, caramel / Full body, malty, sweet and somewhat syrupy, big hop bite but still not quite up to the sweet malts, with bitter finish / Big flavors of caramel, toffee, orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple, cut pine / I little sweet for me as compared to the best, but still a fine brew.

On tap at Apex Bar in Portland, OR. Colour...clear, garnet-amber with no head. Nose...redolent of hop resin and pine tar. Palate...sweeeet! More citrus than on the nose and loads of tropical fruit that allows the bite of the hops to push through. The boiled sweets amble through the palate as does some fruity frosting and it all works very well together!

Deep red pour with a thin head. Aroma of tropical fruit. Dank. Huge mouth. Taste is sweet followed by a bitter blast at the end. Citrus and some booze. Overall a very tasty DIPA.

I have had this many times but never rated it. The most noticable characteristic is the the fresh cat pee aroma from the citra hops - love it. Also aromas of mango and grapefruit. My favorite haymarket beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great mango and grapefruit aroma, tropical almost. Alcohol is incredibly hidden.
