“This beer is a 1-2 punch of Citra and Amarillo, with notes of mango, tangerine, and poha berry wrapping up in a bone dry finish that’s like swimming naked in a pool of fruit juice and then drying off with a cashmere towel,” reads a post on the San Diego, Calif.-based brewery’s Instagram page.
According to the brewery, Mega Fortunate Islands was released both on tap and 22-ounce bottles at the brewery on Tuesday, and bottles will be available “around SoCal” starting “next week.”
