In this beer blog, we are going to get into one of my favorite craft brewery from Chicago. It is Une Année Brewery and it is Maya Belgian Imperial India Pale Ale. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their stout, you know the history of this young and upcoming craft brewery. If you have not, please, read it to get to this Chicago base craft brewery. Let us get into this Imperial IPA.
It has a cloudy copper color with a white constant head. The smell has a slight citrus notes. The taste has a funky sweet citrus notes with slight carbonation notes. The aftertaste has a sweet malty to citrus notes. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.uneannee.com):
Maya – Belgian IPA
ABV: 7.6% – Inspired by the founder’s daughter, and just like her, truly a one of a kind. A uniquely dryhopped Belgian Golden Ale with a subtle sweetness and a lot of mischievous tones. Don’t be disarmed by her easy going nature, she packs quite a punch.
