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.

Great NZ hop aroma - mango, guava, lychee, sesame seeds. All the good NZ stuff with none of the weirdness - are the hops themselves improving or are brewers learning to use them better? Or both? Clean, lean maltiness does the job and gets out of the way without being particularly remarkable. Very clean, with a looong fine bitterness that really only becomes apparent after finishing the bottle. An IPA that’s different enough from the usual to be worthwhile. Classy beer.

JohnRMurdoch (3414) - 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.

01110110011001010111001001111001001000000110100001 - or in English very hoppy, almost dry, not bad. For a beer that they give you the recepie for this would be a cracking try at home home brew. I thought it lacked a finish is all. Nice though light florals, nice bitterness, sweet enough without being cloying and very drinkable.

"english style leaning with the malt balance. not really my thing. i dog the hops used, spicy and floral, but the beer is too malty for what i like in the style.

DSG (6352) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Tom L. Slightly hazy deep golden-orange. Aroma of stale fruity hops. Flavor has light malt sweetness, a bit of honey and somewhat stale fruity hops. Medium-bodied. Might be good when fresher, hope to try again.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - AUG 24, 2014
Very hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is quite hoppy. Citrus, caramel malts, grapefruit, wood, a bit floral. Thiner than expected but a decent medium body. Flavor is floral, citrus, orange, light candied malt. A decent IPA but I don’t see the big draw with this one.
