Is it too early to start thinking about Spring? I know we’re still in the middle of Winter right now, but it hasn’t been too horrible this year and who knows what news the groundhog will have for us this Thursday (Groundhog Day is February 2nd). At Pyramid Brewing they’ve been doing a bit more than just thinking about Spring and earlier this month they announced the release of their Spring seasonal, Triangulate Citrus Pale Ale. Dry hopped with Lemondrop™ hops and real lemon peel, Triangulate brings us Spring a bit early this year.
Also arriving now from Pyramid is their limited time Brewer’s Reserve Railroad Avenue, which will be available from mid-January to late April. An Imperial Porter, Railroad Avenue uses deep roasted malts and roasted barley with dashes of vanilla, cinnamon and dark brown sugar. According to Pyramid: “Railroad Avenue is a big, malty brew that conducts the palate to a nicely spiced, mildly sweet finish.”
Here is the full press release from Pyramid Brewing Company:
SEATTLE (January, 2017) – Pyramid Breweries today announced the release of its spring seasonal, Triangulate Citrus Pale Ale, which hits shelves in mid-January. This refreshing new brew is dry-hopped with Lemondrop™ hops and real lemon peel for a big, citrusy nose and flavor.
“We are extremely excited to release our Triangulate Citrus Pale Ale as our new spring seasonal,” said Head Brewer Ryan Pappe. “The combination of fruited ales and white ales make this beer incredibly unique. The lemon peel and Lemondrop™ hops with wheat in the malt bill results in a juicy, flavorful recipe. Beer drinkers will enjoy the crisp and refreshing profile!”
Triangulate Citrus Pale Ale’s three hops sharpen the citrusy flavor and aroma, while a trio of malts and grains create a smooth, full body. With a huge helping of Lemondrop™ hops and real lemon peel, the accompanying Apollo and Cascade hops produce an additional layer of complexity to the seasonal pale ale. Wheat and oats take the malt body in a unique direction for a satisfying mouth-feel.
This month, Pyramid Breweries also unveils the limited time Brewer’s Reserve Railroad Avenue, which will be available mid-January to late April. This Imperial Porter uses deep roasted malts and roasted barley with dashes of vanilla, cinnamon and dark brown sugar. Railroad Avenue is a big, malty brew that conducts the palate to a nicely spiced, mildly sweet finish.
“These beers are a fantastic addition to our flavorful lineup of seasonal and year-round brews,” said General Manager Robert Rentsch. “We discovered a distinctive take on some popular Northwest styles, and we expect Triangulate Citrus Pale Ale and Brewer’s Reserve Railroad Avenue to be popular additions to our collection of seasonal brews.”
Spring in the Pacific Northwest is enchanting as snow thaws and daylight lengthens. Whether a day-hike, baseball spring training, or scenic road trip, Triangulate Citrus Pale Ale is the perfect seasonal brew to welcome spring adventure.
