Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

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.
