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.

R4N5H (386) - 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.

22.01.2015, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Small shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet fruity, rubber, tropical fruits, winegum, moss, hops, pine needles, sap, strawberry, dried fruits, grass. Taste is dry concentrated grassy, leafs, hops, grass, pine needles, weeds, alcohol, moss, bark, light malts, minerals, sap. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

pricey290483 (712) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2015

ClubGonzo (4817) - 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

esp0r (2390) - NORWAY - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours dark copper, very hazy, with a thin beige head. Smell of citrus, grapefruit, some spices and caramel malts - sadly i think this bottle may be a bit old, the aromas is not overwhelming. Moderate sweet, citrus and zests, quite clean, medium bitter, spicy with a nice resin tail. Not sure why this bottles was sendt to Norway...... they’re too old

JohnRMurdoch (3901) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 1, 2014
330ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Dark amber brown, not much head. Sweet fruity malt aroma and flavour. Bitter sweet aftertaste. A bit watery. More an amber ale than a pale ale. Too sweet & malty for me.

bottle , liquorking,cromwell, 2months past sell by date. average nose quite resiny and a bit roasted pineappley, flavour quite rich and more beery than lager/pilsner which is good, excellent palate weight with the 7% and really quite a punchy little beer, finishes good nice and rich. old school IPA with plenty of booze weight and soft beery palate

nomadnicol (2) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 12, 2014 does not count
Great beer, very strong and packing in punch. Not sure I could drink it all night, couldn’t afford to anyway. But a couple of these when sitting in a comfy chair after a hard days slog is no bad thing.
