Fortunate Islands — Modern Times

Yesterday’s Mystery Beer was described as a “Hoppy, Tropical, Wheat”, which is how the brewers at Modern Times describe their year-round beer. (Tropical or citrusy… they seem to change it up.) This beer is light and refreshing, but satisfies your need for that hop kick as well.

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.

There’s still pints and pitchers available, so stop in soon and try this delicious beer from one of the best new breweries in San Diego.
