“It’s called the Swedish Gymnast and the reason it’s called the Swedish Gymnast is because it’s a light blonde with a lot of hops.”

The beer is a single-hopped session ale.

“It’s lively and juicy with a fresh dry-hopped character. There’s only one kind of hops in the entire beer.”

Colyn wanted to showcase the citra hops in the beer. Citra hops is a fairly new variety with smooth floral and citrus aroma and flavour, according to Craft Beer Academy.

“We wanted to showcase the lemony, piney, melon-pineapple flavour which really comes out like this fruit punch kind of flavour,” Colyn said.
