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.

A well made and overall delightful blend of aromas made me expect a stronger flavor body. Not that it was lacking in flavor but it does set a high expectation when the aroma is so rich and colorful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2016
16 oz. can. Pours a clear yellow gold with a thin white head. Pleasant aroma of mango, orange and grapefruit. The flavor is similar. Nice crisp, hoppy finish. Light-medium bodied.

wchesser (1867) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Fresh can. Golden orange. Nose is juicy citrus hops. Taste is bready and dry malt, juicy mouthwatering and lightly bitter hops. Delicious and crushable. Would not take this as a wheat beer at all. Miles better than most session IPAs even though it isn’t marketed as such.

Cybercat (4989) - Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Taps clear golden with a fair eggshell head. Aroma features resiny hops, zesty lemon, and fresh wheat notes. Flavor nicely echoes the aroma, though with more emphasis on the wheat character and less on the hops. Mouthfeel presents thin body and OK fizz. Sail to the Fortunate Islands.

josanguapo (995) - SPAIN - JUL 2, 2016
From Zombier Club. Can. In Teku glass. After dinner. Good aroma and taste, more citrusy than tropical, noticeabily bitter. However, it has a watery texture that significantly substracts to the overall experience

Hazy blond color. Crisp and dry, with a fruity note in the aroma and a zesty touch in the flavor.
Pleasant.
