Fortunate Islands Hoppy Tropical Wheat
Brewery: Modern Times Brewing Co, San Diego, CA
Beer Style: Hoppy Tropical Wheat
I seriously was enjoying the warm weather we had last week (it was like 60 — that’s warm to us Buffalonians). I had to tap into this bad boy right away. Definitely a warm weather beer. If I had access to this it would probably become my golfing beer. Easy to drink, flavorful, yet light. A really nice package.

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.
