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.

Gylden farge, lavt skum. Lukter veldig mildt eddik og tropisk frukt. Smaker mildt surt, med noe karamell og frukt. Greit bitter i ettersmaken. Medium konsistens

330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge. Tiny white head. Muddy pale orange head. Aroma is apricot, yeast and cooked vegetables. Sour and yeasty taste. Not very hoppy for an IPA.

From a bottle in Wellington. Decent IPA, classical kiwi hops. Not too long finish but citrous and refreshing

tombutlin (36) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 7, 2015
Surprisingly weak aroma, yet a full hoppy taste. Normally IPA are the other way round, so was great to have a strong taste. Tropical fruit and spruce, cloudy pour, light carbonation. Long finish

R4N5H (189) - SINGAPORE - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle from The Globe, Hong Kong, poured into a tulip glass. Cloudy muddy orange colour with a small head which quickly dissipates. Fruity aroma - pine, grapefruit and some honey. Palate is very fruity wit some malt and hops - grapefruit, peach, caramel and pine. Malt and alcohol backbone. Heavy, but a good recommendation from the friendly barstaff.

Taste is dry concentrated grassy, leafs, hops, grass, pine needles, weeds, alcohol, moss, bark, light malts, minerals, sap. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

ClubGonzo (4444) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a cloudy brown-orange body with a small, bubbly head. Aroma is rose water, diacetyl, nuts, honey, grass, straw and hints of pine and grapefruit. Taste is grass, peaches, passion fruit, pine, resin, straw, bready malts and hints of herbs, tomato plant and caramel. Lingering bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Quite nice, but the diacetyl (or whatever it is that I detect as diacetyl, anyhow) in the aroma plus a lackluster appearance draws down the overall impression a bit. Fair enough all in all, but I was hoping for more from the debut beer from a brewery with just about the coolest name ever. :-D
