COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Get those images of Godzilla and Mothra out of your head! I know you were thing it, but this beer has nothing to do with Japan whatsoever. Yakima is actually a region in the state of Washington USA where some of Joseph Woods favorite hops are grown. This monster of a Pale Ale showcases several of those hops. "Its a easy drinking beer, flavorsome enough for your father n law to exclaim "wow - thats fruity!" yet complex enough for any green blooded hop-head to appreciate." - Joseph Wood, Liberty Brewer. Gold medal 2012 Brew NZ Awards

explosivedog (911) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 6, 2016

DeliriumT (534) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2016
Stellar beer. Aromas of lemon peel, orange peel, grapefruit, passionfruit, kiwi and faint banana. The flavour is an equally stunning bouquet with no overbearing bitterness. Great beverage ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jercraigs (10302) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2016
2016-05-07. Lightly hazy dark yellow body, nice creamy beige head. 3+ Aroma is mild, lightly doughy malt, sweet orange and citrus peel. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout. Mild Muddled but pleasant citrus melange. Minerally lemon-lime character grows in the aftertaste as it warms. Average to light bodied palate, moderate carbonation. 3+ Enjoyable, but less assertive hop profile than my preference. 7/3-4/7/3/14-16 Bottle from Glengarry Wines, Auckland, NZ.
