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.

My favorite new beer from Fortunate Islands in San Diego, CA. Hard to find. Not a wheat beer at all, this is more like a pale ale, hoppy yet smooth. It has a sweet fruity nose and fresh hoppy taste.
