Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: beertooth on 01-23-2011

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.

Citrusy and packs an alcohol punch @ 9%, one of my favorites from Haymarket who continues to put out fantastic beer.

On tap at Haymarket on 9/19/14.

Unfortunately for this beer, I had it side-by-side with the fresh hop version. It lost in that battle. However, that doesn't take away from the fact that this was an excellent beer. It has a great citrus hop nose, lots of complexity and juiciness in the flavor and a dry bitter-sweet finish.
