Notes/Commercial Description:
Fortunate Islands shares the characteristics of an uber-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. 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.

DO NOT LET THE NAME FOOL YOU! This is probably the most solid IPA I've had in awhile. Probably my favorite heady replacement here in So. Cal. Poured this beautiful gold, hazy color, wonder 2 finger head. Big vibrant hop notes, not just the bitter, but the citrus, mango, pineapple, oranges, just beautiful! For the taste, I'm surprised the ABV is 4.8, I finished a 4 pack myself without noticing. It's so drinkable. All in all, I will keep this in the rotation. A very solid brew and deserves a lot better reviews.
