Brewing since 1984, Pyramid Brewing keeps it fresh with Subliminal State Hazy Pale Ale, its latest seasonal beer release. This new release is the perfect beer for fans of hazy, unfiltered beers with both juicy and bitter hop flavors.
Subliminal Slate Hazy Pale Ale was originally brewed for the Lazy Dog Restaurant chain. According to the brewery, this beer received strong, positive feedback from drinkers for its sessionability and citrusy hop flavor, therefore an easy decision to bring it into package.
“Our brewers have had a ton of fun creating hazy juicy hop bombs lately,” said Pyramid Brewing’s Head Brewer, Ryan Pappe, in a press release. “And Subliminal State is one that truly deserves the spotlight. If you’re looking for a great springtime crusher with plenty of hop character, this is your beer.”
Subliminal State is a medium bodied, cloudy and bright orange Pale Ale. Brewed with 60% wheat in the grain bill for an extra fluffy texture, in true Northwest style the brewery opted to keep a balanced lingering bitterness in the finish. Denali, Citra, and Amarillo hops supercharge the beer with fresh spring pine, red grapefruit, and pulpy orange citrus character. Pyramid’s brewers ferment Subliminal State quicker than most beers and at higher temperatures due to a Kviek, an increasingly celebrated Norwegian yeast strain that complements the citrus-forward hops with tropical fruit flavors. The hypnotic, all-seeing eye on every bottle watches over those who imbibe this 5.4% ABV sessionable ale.
Subliminal State is available this Spring season and will make an appearance in the Fall between the brewery’s summer and winter releases. The beer is available in 12oz 6-pack and 12-pack bottles and 22 oz bomber bottles in grocery stores and convenient stores throughout Pyramid’s distribution footprint.
