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.

Dapierce17 (110) - Pasco, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Pours a gorgeous hazy amber with white silky head. Aroma of citrus fruits such as pineapple and orange as well as mango. Flavor is more if those tropical notes. Tastes like an IPA that's missing the bitter bite. Very tasty, and greatly made beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Canned. Very bland, flavorless and undistinguished. Not my idea of a well crafted beer at all. I can’t help but think that this is meant to appeal to the macro bud loving crowd as a crossover beer.

Can sample at Beer & Beyond shop. Hazy yellow golden with a persistent creamy head. Splendid and fresh aroma of tropical fruit with papaya, mango, lychee and pine needles in the nose. Fruity and piney hops flavors, strong long lingering bitterness, well balanced and tasty. Light-medium bodied, grainy texture. Great.
