Modern Times Fortunate Islands

This is a self-described hoppy, tropical wheat beer from Modern Times Beer of San Diego, California. They share their recipes on their website for homebrewers. This uses Citra and Amarillo hopes.

The beer pours a dark honey golden in color. There is a relatively short head of white foam, both bubbly yet thick. The aroma is very hop forward, ripe, round, tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit, and a bit of dankness. The taste follows the aromas, loads of tropical fruit along with a congruous dankness that matches the notes of mango skin and passion fruit skin. The beer drinks easy and smooth with a light, tingling carbonation. There is a light to moderate bitterness on the dry finish. This is so good, try this if you ever get the chance!
