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.

Tap at the brewpub, December 2015. A balanced double ipa, in which neither the sweetness of the malt nor the hops seem more prominent. Hazy, copper color. Big american hop aroma,Some hay and grass. Some flavor of alcohol is noticeable, it is bitter with hops but there is a lot of sweet malt as well.

Nose is fantastic. Brown sugar, orange, pineapple. Taste is orange candy, citrus, pine, a little butterscotch. Finishes grassy and piney. I really enjoyed this. Solid Citra profile.

MartinT (8855) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
My Bottom Line:
This slender Double IPA promotes grapefruit and wooden resins in an elegant mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces around the shiny bronze.
-The flavor profile is balanced, not brash.
-Malts are slick but don’t contribute much in the way of flavor.
-Fruitiness is also reminiscent of elderberries.
-The hop aroma could be brighter for the style.
-The Citra is not overwhelming in this one, avoiding the sandy pitfalls of the cat litter kind. -This is professionally rendered and highly flavorful.

On tap at the brewpub.

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice grapefruit, peach, some pineapple into a bit of biscuit, bread, dough with a hint of pine in there as well. Taste was a mix of orange, grapefruit, pine and slight resin into a bit of biscuit, cracker, slight herbal notes, finishing bitter.

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.
