New Beer Blog Une Année Brewery Maya Belgian Imperial India Pale Ale


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 (

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.

Closing, I am so happy to see this craft brewery having some success and start moving their beers out of the Chicagoland area.  I love the name of this craft brewery.  It is the French word for one year.  There is some nice packaging.  They did a great job color and aroma.  There is a nice balance in the taste profile.  I love it and it is pretty drinking brew.  This is a great brewery and I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/
