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.

Smell is huge diacetyl. Buttery popcorn all the way. Very big disappointment. Hopefully a bad batch because this is not good at all. Tastes buttery, creamy, stale and in no way smells or tastes tropical or even wheaty. Bad first impression to a brewery I was excited about and was thinking I was really going to like.
