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.

A-- Poured a hazy honey orange color. Fluffy bright white head, one finger, that slowly faded to film. Good retention on swirling and leaves a good amount of film on the sides of the glass for lacing. S-- Tropical fruits, lychee, guava, passion fruit, lemon and orange peel, grapefruit, and a light carmel malt backbone. Nice nose on this. T-- Pine and grapefruit bitterness. Slightly sweet taste and some lemon, lime and and orange acidity. Not the strange flower tasting bitterness that I have gotten used to with NZ beers. M-- Clean, crisp, and finishes quite dry. Good lingering hop bitterness finish. In the mouth the lack of malt is apparent and in a way the beer needs more malt but it is well balanced for what it is. O-- Easy drinking, well balanced IPA. Well hidden ABV. One of the better Kiwi IPA’s I have had with the Kiwi hops being used. Lacking in the feel a bit but rest is pretty good.

bhensonb (12447) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours hazy orange gold with a slight white head. Aroma is floral/fruit and something suggesting celery. Med body. Flavor is light roast malt, fruity, floral and "celery". - developing some resin. Smooth. Not harsh, but quite hoppy and decently bitter.

marcus (7550) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle from City Beer. Pours cloudy amber with a nice beige head and a citrus, toffee and celery aroma. There is a tasty caramel malt flavor with a friuty finish. The hopping is quite unusual in that the flavor is more fruity than bitter. A nice brew.

AndyReynolds (1055) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle. Honestly the aroma was amazing, but the flavor let me down a little. Too malty in my mind, but I did just finish the Fresh Hopwired. Still a solid IPA and one I will have to try again.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2012 Re-tried on Tap: Really nice IPA. It has a great hoppy flavour, good mouthfeel, and a nice bitterness at the end. Easy to drink! Even better on tap.
