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 Wood's favorite hops are grown. This monster of a Pale Ale showcases several of those hops. "It's a easy drinking beer, flavorsome enough for your father 'n law to exclaim "wow - that's fruity!" yet complex enough for any green blooded hop-head to appreciate." - Joseph Wood, Liberty Brewer.
