The son of Mathias, our signature Imperial I.P.A., this double I.P.A. Packs the same hoppy punch at only Citra hops can bring. Huge aromas of mango and tropical fruit but less booze and malt than daddy.

On two at HM. p is clear gold white head that dissipated and left a thin lacing. Nose is a espouse thick hops w pineapple and mango on top full and layered. Taste highlights the hops w a bit of full earth below. Much less fruit on the palate from the nose.... The impy version of this is up next for me and I expect it to pack a punch!

Mathias jr dipa. On tap at the hay. 12oz pour... Tap yields a darker caramel toffee pour to go alongside a medium frothy off-white head... ...flavors are a bit sweet and mildy muddled. Sweet tropical fruits persist with more if a deeper sweet caramel malt. Somewhat thicker bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Hops dnt seem to shine enough and the malts somewhat take hold more so than expected. 7/4/7/3/13

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub.Big citrus and Boozy are the main flavours. Like a double red with the malting. Fuller mouthfeel.

draft at haymarket a while ago, pours a hazy deep golden with white head. Nose has a really fragrant scent of orange citrus, cat box, flowers. Flavors are right, nice juicy clementines bitter rind throughout, really drinkable and tasty stuff.

On tap at brewpub. Pours clear orangish amber with a white head. Aromas of tropical fruits, caramel malts, grassy hop note, and some bread. Flavors of mango, citrus, bready malts, and bit of earthy hops. Found this to be quite enjoyable.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber orange with an off-white head that laces thickly and dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of mango and tropical fruits with some backing earthy grains. Flavor has light sweet mango with other tropical fruits with grass and grains.

Pint pour at Haymarket in Chicago. Haymarket and I get along pretty well. Itís simple: They brew it and so far Iíve always enjoyed it. Mithias Junior and I started with a strage introduction, though. Our server informed us that the original Mithias was about to re-release this week, and I should make sure to try it, in addition to my Mithias Junior. I guess there needs to be a toned-down Junior version, so you donít get too laid out on Sunday afternoon. I think his honesty made me enjoy the Mithias Junior even more. It has a strong initial hoppy kick and a smooth aftertaste. Iím excited to try Mithias Senior.

4 oz pour on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice pretty hazy darker amber pour with orange glowing notes. A frothy tannish head is frothy, bigger, with solid lacing. Aromas are some dank pine and earthy hops, citrusy oranges and grapefruit, with florals and grass. Sweeter toffee, mellow tropical fruits, and bread. Tropical fruits and grapefruit really bring their A Game as we get into it. Initial is very tropical offering lots of Citra, a big load of grapefruit, mangos, lemons, and grass. Florals, touches of soap as it stays dry and bitter yet emanates a good load of fruity qualities. Some bread and dough, biscuits show up a little further into the middle with lingering crisp toast, toffee, pale malts coming in but largely being wiped out by a cool, collected flavorful Citra hop aura. Finish leaves some juicy citrus and hops, dried out a bit. Itís sweeter, just because the Citra keeps bringing the flavors. But it does work, itís pretty drinkable, and itís hard to notice this guy near 8 ABV at all. Lacing quite nice, head stays around and laces very well. Pretty good execution here. Itís a little sweet, which the hops donít really cover, but the flavor of said hops are pretty nice. Iíd prefer Daddy, but this is nice enough and a decent display of Citra.. Just a bit too sweet for me.

Draft at Haymarket. Of the three, this is probably my least favorite. Pours a slightly murky orangey gold. Sticky white head. The nose is pretty nice, leading with some catty fruity. Lots of tropical aromatics, but there is a sweetness as well. A touch on the grainier side in the nose. On tasting, Strong bitter note but a punch of sweetness keeps it from getting really balanced in the way it should be. A pretty big beer with a quite a bit of mouthfeel, but the sweetness really mucks it up.

4oz pour @ the brew pub. Not as enjoyable as Mathais III. Pours orange amber with a thin off white head. Floral hoppy aroma, with some citrus fruits and a light grassy/herbal note that seemed slightly out of place. The flavor brings a nice hoppy bite, with big notes of citrus and pine. Like toffee sweet malt linger in the background. Decent.
