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.

On tap at Haymarket, started with a 4oz. while sampling then had a 12oz. Everyone at the table liked this one, me included. Great taste and high powered, a perfect pairing. This should be sold in tall boy cans throughout the greater Chicagoland area.

draft at brewery, maybe im getting too old for these iipas. Big sweet boozy and tons and tons of hops, some pineapple and light notes of the awesomeness of the citra hop but just too much sweet and booze to make it work very well. Next time.

Taster on tap at GTMW. Listed as Spam, Mathias... not sure if that’s a different entry or not... If so, please correct me. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white kind of khaki head, leaves decent bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Kind of slick texture. Moderate sweet taste, moderate to bigger bitter taste. Bigger caramel malt, kind of grainy flavor. Pine, orange citrus. Some grapefruit. Nice DIPA, but a bit more malt flavor than I’d like, more sweetness than necessary. A more dry finish would be nice.

A golden copper ale with a thin white head. In aroma, smooth fruity caramel malt with good floral hops, catty and resinous. In mouth, sweet orange caramel malt, with fragrant hops, resinous and pungent, alcohol warmth. On tap at brewery.

On tap @ Haymarket. Amber to copper in color with an off-white head. Good hop aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, and orange. But, quite caramel forward and malty. Lots of pine as well. Tons of caramel, sugar, malt sweetness. Some pineapple sweetness, too. Grapefruit, tropical fruitiness from the hops, and a bit of pine bitterness. Good hop character, but too sweet.

Draft during Chicago trip in 2011. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor is packed with tropical fruit, clementines and peaches, some grapefruit citrus, caramel, sweet honey, grapefruit rind, good bitterness. Alcohol is very well hidden as this is balanced and highly drinkable at 10%, yet assertive enough to warrant the Imperial IPA category. Extremely tasty.

Sampled at the brewery. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops, some caramel and pale malts, and light dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A solid beer but could be hoppier with less malts.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2014 This was sampled at the brewpub with Doran and Dave. Came in the glass an ambre-orange with and off-white head. Nose of tropical fruit. Medium body. Flavor is tropical fruit with mango and pineapple. Finish shows floral hops. Really nice beer.
