Had this on 2013-06-15 in Duluth, MN at Fitger's (from tasting notes). Note this is not the normal Superior Trail IPA since it was done in cask with mangos.

A - Hazy dark peach wih a 1-finger white head and good lacing.

S - Dank. BIG mango. Light pine and hop floral. Very aromatic.

T - Hop forward. Mango flesh. Quite bitter. Light roast. Finishes much like it starts with some mango flesh yielding to lingering bitterness. Dry not sweet.

M - Medium body and light carbonation. Creamy, resinous, prickly.

O - Very nice. Tons of mango and plenty bitter.

Poured from growler into pint glass. From 7/6/11 tasting notes.
A: Pours a slightly hazy sunset yellow-orange with 1/2 inch white head. Some lacing.
S: Very aromatic. Loads of sharp pine, pineapple, and citrus hops. Hint of honey and floral note.
T: Very sharp and bitter hops. A bit much for me, but hopheads would rejoice.
M: Very sharp and bitter hop feel. Light-medium body (drinks heavier than ABV). Mildly soft and oily too.
D: Very enjoyable, but the high hop content limits the drinkability for me. A nice summer brew.

A: Crystal clear light orange/dark yellow with a small white head. Good lacing/

S: Sweet oranges, citrus and a bit of pine hops. A bit of tropical fruit too.

T: Fairly bright and citrus hops up front. Some sweet fruity and orange flavors as well. Decent malt backbone comes next, still finishes fairly bitter.

M: A bit on the thinner side. Average, yet softer carbonation. Feels slick.

D: Pretty good drinkability for an IPA. Pretty solid, but not as good as there El Nino.
