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.

Very hoppy smell, with citrus, mango, tangerine. Quite nice and hoppy. Taste is also very good, with a nice balance between a malty, cereal-y backbone, yeast and hoppy flavors. Grapefruit, pine, bread. Juicy and nutty in the aftertaste, this in a really nice ale.
