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

BVery (8684) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Pint can. Clear golden orange pour with a white head. Like a tropical hoppy pale ale with a bit of wheat body. Easy drinking and exploding with flavor. Excellent.

jahshuwuh (520) - USA - NOV 20, 2015
A golden clear color with a finger of white head. Tropical smells, pineapple, orange, tangerine, some dank hops. Taste is a nice tame tropical hop bitter with just enough malt sweetness, the wheat beer flavors hug the middle. A good well rounded wheat/pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very fruity and refreshing. Nice wheat beer, kind of a mix between wheat and a saison. Doghouse in Glasgow, can. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RafeAU (553) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Can in LA (canned 21 Sep 2015, 5.0% ABV). Clear amber with small white head. Huge hop aroma - tropical fruits, pineapple and orange, lovely. Thin, light body, no malt sweetness but moderate bitterness makes it feel a bit unbalanced, bready malt aroma comes at the end. Aroma was fantastic but didn’t follow into the flavour unfortunately. More like a session IPA. Decent.
