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 donít 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.

What an amazing ipa. This beer hails from New Zealand, and has super hoppy mouth feel with tons of character to it on the palate. Kept long enough on the palate you'll pick out subtle notes of fruitiness like pears and bananas. On the nose it's hop aroma explodes ,and again, the subtle fruit aromas come out. Great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2015 A very nice IPA with a noticeable difference from the standard US brewed examples. Held up in initial comparison but disappointed with a decidedly íalcoholicí ending.

Bottle. Pours murky yellow with little else. Aroma is strange yeast vinous, cheese rind, hop vegetal funk, and orange. Flavor is hoppy fruit juice with a grapefruit bitter finish.. Full body but drying biitter. foreign enough not to judge as an American ipa. Good as such.

From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a hazy pale gold with a thick white head. Earthy and vinous aroma. Flavors of grass and mild citrus. Bitter finish. Not your typical American-style IPA.

massive citrus all over this. very sweet citrus, probably grapefruit. not so bitter for an ipa, which is a good thing here, balances it right up. delicious, and on tap too.

The only problem is that I can only find this in 330ml bottles and itís so delicious with its citrus aroma and taste that itís gone before it has a chance to really open up. Next time I think Iíll decant two bottles into a jug. Or three.

Interesting IPA. Has hops, bitterness, malty backbone, yada yada, but it's the unexpected sweetness that is intriguing. The sweetness is present throughout -- from beginning to end. At first it's the only note, then subsides to the bitterness, and finally reasserts its dominance at the end. A very unique IPA -- can't say I have had anything like it before. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy orange with white head. Aroma of orange rind and a very little sweet grapefruit. Taste is malt, orange rind and lemon zest.

Uploading old reviews that were missing comments. Standout trait was the citrusy hop profile in taste and nose. Malt profile not as big as advertised. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
