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.

Pint can from Wine Warehouse. Pours slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is very nice: fruity and juicy orange and grapefruit, pine, wheat. Flavor is smooth juicy citrus, including orange (especially orange), grapefruit. Wheat notes and tropical fruit juices follow, then a bit of melon (but not bitter). Wow, this is good.

Pint can. Pours a relatively clear golden straw color with a large off-white head. Aroma is mild, citrus and wheat, lightly floral. Lots of citra hops, tastes sweet and modest crisp bitterness. Has all the elements of a refreshing wheat with a light body and nice hop notes. A little disapointed that it doesn’t actually taste like wizards, but I’ll let it pass.

MattH (876) - California, USA - JUN 22, 2017
Can from Pacific Grove, CA Trader Joe’s. Dated 5/23/16. Translucent gold pour. The lemony orange of the Citra and spiciness of the Amarillo Hops meld well to create a pleasant medium strength aroma. Flavor is fresh wheat, orange, orange pith, and some tanginess. Very nice’ well put together, refreshing beer.
