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.

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: 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.

Took it out of the fridge 30 minutes before serving and the thing exploded out of the bottle. Yellow cloudy appearance. White fluffy head. Nice hoppy aroma. Sharp bitter finish. A very nice beer if I ever visit new Zealand. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
