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.

12oz pour into a weird goblet.

This beer is a deep, cloudy bruised peach color with a thin layer of white head. It's really hazy with yeasty goodness.

The nose is ripe with citrus and tropical fruit. Big waves of grapefruit and mango, pine, and candied oranges. It smells like a great Midwest DIPA, super juicy!

The taste follows with zested orange, grapefruit, pine needles, sweet doughy malts and some booze. It's not overly complex, but it hits my hop fix. The citra hops are really bright.

The mouthfeel is full and slick with a low level of carbonation.

Tasty DIPA, but a one and done for me. It also took a few different people to get my order for this beer right. I'd order one more if I didn't feel it would take another 45 minutes to get it. This is probably best house beer they had on. The 10% really caught up to me though.
