Don't drink this beer

If on your travels you come across an imported bottle of IPA from a 'fowl' named brewery in 'The Windy City' look at it carefully and if you see a white haze at the bottom the bottle, put it down and walk away.

That white haze sounds in the bottom dodgy though ;~)
Wayne, we're taking the mick here - I think Steve & I suspect the beer is good, but prob a strongly flavoured US IPA (flavours of grapefruit & pine, etc?) & bottle-conditioned - naturally carbonated & unfiltered of yeast (this yeast is what makes it different from the other non-'real' ales on the supermarket shelf).
US craft-brews can be a bit of an acquired taste though, even if you're used to decent UK bitter - but IMO they're definitely worth the effort :~)
My money is on Goose Island IPA? (even before I spotted your 'fowl' language!)

I've since read that Diatomaceous Earth is not hazardous if ingested by humans but I still don't think I'd deliberately want to drink any, especially in my brew! The whole batch was destined for the UK. I hear it said that the Brits wouldn't know the difference.

Slight grammar error there. It should read:
"I hear(d) it WAS said that the Brits wouldn't know the difference"

Where did you get the idea that the "white haze" is diatomaceous earth (D.E.)? D.E. is used for filtering and clarification. But the IPA is bottle conditioned and unfiltered. GI's clarified beers have no white haze - or anything else - except beer in the bottle. The precipitate in the bottle-conditioned IPA is easily left behind by anyone who knows how to pour a typical BCB.
If you're going to disrecommend this beer, do try to come up with a better reason than that. Are you going to go on a rant about British beers fined with isinglass next?

1. A bottle conditioned beer is likely to have a precipitate of yeast.
2. Yes, (some of) the Brits know how to pour beer that has a sediment in the bottom of the bottle. (the others obviously have US blood :-)
3. I'm amazed that the US has sunk so far in beer knowledge that the average citizen doesn't know what yeast is or its part in beer production.

I wonder what you consider is the correct method? I have Scots blood - I believe that I have paid for that sediment, and I am damn well going to drink it.

What makes you think they use yeast in their "beer" (c.f. Coors, Bud, etc.)?
