This is an incredible beer.
A: Amber through and through. Slightly hazy with great head retention and mild to heavy lacing. Off white head of foam.
S: MANGO!!! Grassy earthy tones with heavy heavy fruity waves.
T: Umm delicious? Malty but packing plenty of a kick with the hop level. 10% was masked well with the thickness of this beer. Hop heaven.
M: So thick and gunky! Just as it should be, enamel scrapingly heavy. Rests in the pockets, tongue and throat.
D: Went back to back with this, simply the best.
Serving type: growler

16 oz. draft at The Haymarket
I can't give this beer a proper review, since I had it over a bachelor party weekend in Chicago and didn't take notes. But I felt the need to expand on my rating. Mathias was simply amazing. In a 3-day binge of a wide variety of craft beers of all shapes and sizes, this one stood out as deserving individual recognition. I suppose it should be noted that I've had my first Pliny The Elder and Heady Topper within the last month. Mathias left a bigger and better impression than both.
VERY citrus forward with plenty of tropical fruit and floral notes. Juicy, sticky, and just enough piney bitterness to give it some bite. Easily the smoothest 10% DIPA I've ever had. Possibly the best as well. If you are in Chicago I cannot recommend The Haymarket highly enough.
Serving type: on-tap
