Review: Pyramid Subliminal State Hazy Pale Ale

Review: Pyramid Subliminal State Hazy Pale Ale

Pyramid’s latest was originally brewed for the Lazy Dog restaurant chain, but now it’s going out as a bottled seasonal. It’s (another) hazy pale ale, which Pyramid describes as “a tasty beer that combines the best parts of a hazy beer with some west coast-style bitterness” and is its first made with Kveik yeast. There’s 60% wheat in the mash, and hops come courtesy of Denali, Citra, and Amarillo.

I think Pyramid’s description is fairly accurate: This is significantly more bitter than the typical hazy, though there’s a modicum of citrus fruit that tempers the earthy, lightly piney elements. It’s not especially tropical, though there is a neat chocolate note on the back end that recalls a much darker brew.

While it starts off simple, give this one some time and let it warm just a bit to showcase more of its unusual charms.
