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

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

GuideDogSaint (1811) - Xiamen, CHINA - FEB 7, 2015
330ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours hazy yellow brown with a thin white head. Aroma of pine and malt. Bitter finish.

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.

Bottle from beer:shop St Albans. a good beer that pours orange in colour pinaple and peach on the aroma. Grassy and strong peach on the taste very bitter all the way through with a big bitter finish a nice one that i would like to try on tap

ClubGonzo (5683) - 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

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

zvikar (6575) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Tom L. Pours orange with a beige head, aroma of honey, orange, tangerine, flavor is bitter with orange and alcohol, medium bodied.

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.

Stuu666 (15292) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 26, 2014
Keg at the hanging bat. Pours amber, nose is sweet toffee, tropical fruit, taste is juicy mango, pineapple.
