COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fortunate Islands shares the characteristics of a hoppy IPA and an easy drinking wheat beer. A massive dose of Citra and Amarillo hops gives it a blastwave of tropical hop aromatics: mango, tangerine, and passionfruit all leap out of the glass when poured. Brewed with 60% wheat malt, Fortunate Islands also has the mild, nutty malt backbone, reasonable ABV, and restrained bitterness to make it an outstanding session beer.

mrjez (318) - Osaka, JAPAN - APR 30, 2016
500ml can at Lingua World Cafe. Pours a hazy bright light orange, low head. Big enticing tropical notes, mango, mandarine, orange, passionfruit, backed by a slight pine hop note. It tastes quite tangy, those tropical and citrus notes working well together. The carbonation is tingly, it has a light-medium body, ends zesty and slightly sweet. Overall a crisp fresh fruity beer.

Robe orangée claire, trouble, petite mousse blanche qui retombe vite. Nez d’agrumes (citron, mandarine) et de fruits jaunes (pêche, abricot, mangue). On retrouve les mêmes saveurs en bouche. L’amertume est modérée, le corps léger et la longueur bonne. Bière houblonnée agréable et rafraichissante !

Brewdog Shepherd Bush. Keg. Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Decent minerally carbonation. Dry but sweetish creamy malts. Nice smooth piney hops, vague mint streak. Subtle tropical fruits. Light finish. Nice but any wheat character is lost under the hops.

Alkohol: 5% obj.
IBU: 46
Chmiele: Citra, Amarillo
Kolor złoty, klarowny. Piana słabiutka, niska, drobnoziarnista. Bardzo szybko znika z powierzchni. Niemniej jednak centymetrowy krążek nie tonie w piwie. W aromacie świeżość cytrusów. Przede wszystkim miąższ z żółtych grejpfrutów, cytryny, limonki i pomelo, a na drugim planie agrest. Aromat dosłownie miażdży swoją intensywnością. Jest do bólu wytrawny i zdecydowanie w stylu West Coast. Charakter słodowy schowany w oddali. Chmiele dają posmak grejpfrutów, ananasów i limonek. Pszeniczne niuanse subtelnie podkreślone, ale nie mają szans z dominacją chmielu. Na języku pojawia się lekka trawiastość, a pod koniec dugastii nawet trochę pikantności. Goryczka średnia, wytrawny grejpfrutowy finisz. Umiarkowane wysycenie i spore ciało. Mógłbym to piwo pić i wąchać na zmianę godzinami. Polecam każdemu, kto kiedykolwiek je spotka. Coś pięknego!

Etykieta dość prosta i bez polotu, ale z kompletem informacji. Najfajniejsze jest to, że na stronie Modern Times można sprawdzić dokładną recepturę piwa. I jeszcze jedno. Rozbawił mnie napis z tyłu puszki: "This beer is vegan" Haha😃😆😄😛😜 🍺

Riktigt fräsch öl, doftar gott av tropisk frukt, citrus, vete. Rolig kombo och känslan är verkligen en fruktig ipa med inslag av en veteöl. Denna kan jag tänka mig sommarens varma dagar helt klart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Massively hopped indeed. Nice aroma of citra and amarillo. Taste is medium bitter, tropical, juicy, light sweet, a tiny bit of cardboard. Nice finish.

Fashawn (570) - ITALY - APR 9, 2016
Profumo tropicale, tanto mango, ananas, papaya, molto lungo ed intensa. In bocca l’ingresso è dolce con papaya e ananas, nocciolo di pesca, prima di un amaro finale pieno di verde, di erba, vegetale. Corpo leggero, consistenza acquosa, non troppo intensa, è una birra che ha una facilità di bevuta estrema.
