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.

beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 27, 2012
Hazey golden straw colour with thick white head. Floral hop aroma, smooth hop mouthfeel. Not too out there for a Yeastie Boy brew. Very drinkable.

odinstyr (698) - Howell, New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Pours a clear amber-orange with a 2-finger white head. Smells of resin, floral, dough, citrus. Taste is bitter and mildly sweet, citrus & spruce dominate with a milder bready-malt follow-up. Slight yeasty spiciness.

Lukaduke (2918) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours a orange golden color with a two finger eggshell foam hat that settles quickly leaving some lacing trails.... great citrus aromas of grapefruit, navel oranges and a touch of earthy honey malts. On the palate there is a big slightly earthy sweet malt backbone that carries the the fruity driven hop flavors to the front with a well balanced finish.

I love the concept of Digital IPA as much for its taste, as for the open source philospophy of its brewers. Digital retains a strong, hoppy body whilst wholeheartedly reminding me of lollies (in the southern hemisphere) or penny chews and possibly candyfloss (in the northern hemisphere). The malty palate exudes grassy, tarmac and gravel tones. Maybe seaweed pops up, but this could also be the environment in which these brewers are emersed. A wild, pure environment that enables them to spring forth original brews on which they will continue to build their name. RIP MCA.

A - Pours a cloudy golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit, tropical, lemon, and pine hops with sweet caramel and biscuit malts. T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit, pineapple, and tropical hops with some bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some pine and grassy hops come through with some more bitterness and some biscuit malts. The finish is a mix of grapefruit, tropical, piney, and lightly spicy hops with some resiny bitterness and some sweet biscuity malts. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a bitter and lightly dry and sweet finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice hoppy IPA with some nice New Zealand hops and good overall balance.
