Beer added by: Pecan on 07-11-2013

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.

I LOVE this beer! It is a citrus-y, tropical fruity, yet hoppy, wheat beer. ... Let that all soak in for a bit. Just a really enjoyable -- and surprising -- drinking experience. Highly recommended.
