finally, a local, fresh substitute for zombie dust! the only problem is it's $27 a growler plus $5 for the initial one. When your growler pricing is more than 3 floyds, you may want to rethink some things.
A: orangeish light amber. decent white head and lacing. light haze.
S: delicious citra hops-citrus and tropical fruit, above a honeyed, doughy malt base.
T: follows suit. medium to full sweet malts perfectly balanced by smooth, juicy hop bitterness and flavors.
M: at 10%, obviously bigger bodied than zombie dust. carbonation seems a bit light against this more viscous mouthfeel.
O: hell yeah. i was planning on sharing the growler i brought home, but will be selfish.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
