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

harrisoni (17594) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2017 Can from The Bottle Shop Bermondsey and drunk at home. Clear gold colour lasting white head. Big fresh hoppy aroma. Rather amazing really. Big hoppy aroma. Some sweetish pale malt in the mouth. There is enough to act as a backbone for big hoppy aroma and bitter finish. Some tropical fruit. Rather good i thought.

gegwilson (3525) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2017
Can shared with Pix at the Salt Horse, Edinburgh. Clear golden with a frothy white head. Lovely fruity grapefruit aroma. The taste has more hoppy grapefruit and passionfruit. Light bitterness. A touch thin, but good.

Can in the salt horse Edinburgh. Pours golden and clear with a tiny head round the edge of the glass. Nose of very strong citrus and tropical. Taste is pretty tart and hoppy. Not really my kind of beer.

theOptimator (381) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 27, 2016
Aroma is mango pineapple hopping and a hint of sweet malt. Appearance is hazy gold with frothy white head. Taste is peach citrus oniony hopping, light sweet malt followed by mild bitterness. Palate is medium light. Peach hopping lingers. Overall a nice beer. Nothing too unique and there are better hoppy session beers for the money.
