COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed initially for export to USA.
A lmited amount of kegs were released in NZ as Motueka Warrior (as a part of the annual Motueka/Yakima collaboration with Liberty Brewing)

The beer was then brewed for NZ, Aus and Italy under the Digital IPA label. It will be available throughout the southern hemisphere summer of 2011.

NZ Bottle:
This limited-release India Pale Ale (IPA) is an aggressive wee beast that is dedicated to our friend Joseph Wood of Liberty Brewing and to all those hopheads who love drinking IPA day in, day out.
Just as the term digital is all about zeroes and ones, the concept of IPA is all about malts and hops. Enjoy the rich golden malt backbone of Digital while you can... then feel it closing in as the fruity Motueka-grown hops dominate your palate and don’t ever fade away.

IPA as it should be.

This ale is open source - you may not be able to download the beer itself but feel free to grab the recipe at www.yeastieboys.co.nz.

Lovely, great fruity nose, note as much fruit on the palate, also less malty & ’fat’ than some of the NZ IPAs I love so much. Very drinkable and hides its’ alcohol content deceivingly well

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Pours light pale yellow with a small white head. Nose is grapefruit and oranges, grass and bread dough. Taste is sweet for the most part but some decent hop bitterness mixes in around the finish and hangs around a bit. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, medium body with a long aftertaste.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2012
Bottle. Slightly hazy orangeish golden pour with a loose, foamy white head that lasts a little while. Hoppy aroma has notes of pine, lemon, fruit punch, soap, bubblegum and caramel. Flavour displays a lot more malt than the aroma, tempering the hoppy bitterness with some restrained sweetness, but otherwise is pretty much the same. Mouthfeel is creamy but somewhat dry with moderate carbonation and a lengthy bitter finish. While this won’t win any awards for originality it could win for craftsmanship: refreshing, thirst-quenching and superbly balanced, what they do they do well.
