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.

GlasgowTAD (732) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2015
Can from BrewDog Glasgow. Pours a golden yellow colour with a sizeable white head which soon recedes to a foamy layer. The aroma can be picked up from a distance - it is packed with pineapple, mango, grapefruit and persimmon. Taste is mango, citrus orange bitterness throughout, citrus fruit sweetness, fruit salad and persimmon. This is pretty juicy.

(En fût à la brasserie): Celle-là est partout et ses propriétés rafraichissantes en sont pour beaucoup.La protéine du blé flotte allègrement avec les fruits des tropiques. L’amertume fait des culbutes et s’évanouie rapidement, la soif n’y survis pas longtemps.

Vignale (2638) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2015
Storburk från SB. Bärnstensfärgad, aningen disig med snabbt försvinnande skum. Stor frisk men mjuk och djup doft av tropisk frukt, med citrus, mango, ananas och lite passionsfrukt. Mjuk munkänsla, balanserad sötma och beska och riktigt stor fruktighet. Otroligt snygg och välbalanserad, bra rund kropp, inga kanter någonstans och rejält humlad utan någon sträv kärvhet. Mycket gott.

kajser27 (462) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 14, 2015
Amber colored, clear, small white head, quickly becomes only a ring. Aroma is caramel malt, Citra, tropical fruity and floral hops. Moderate- sweet caramel malt flavor, nice tropical fruits and floral hops with a citrus dry finish. Low to medium bitterness, quite hoppy. Light+ bodied and moderate carbonation. So strong in the way of the Hop, the wheat part is far in the background. Excellent!

Poured from a can shared with a friend. Hazy yellow with a really nice head. Hoppy hoppy aromas and bright fruits. More hops on the flavor. Did not taste wheaty at all. that’s a good thing IMHO.

Pours a golden yellow color with a white head. Grapefruit, mango, tangerine, peach, floral, dank hop and wheat aroma and flavors. Light body and average carbonation with a grapefruit tangerine and dank hop finish. Was not expecting this much flavor. Very impressed.

olsvammel (4380) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2015
Can at Bishops Arms in Örebro. Light fruity and hoppy smell with peach and tropical fruits. Similar taste. Light body. A bit watery but refreshing. Probably faded hops. Probably better on a hot summers day.
