Southern Oregon Brewing Nice Rack IPA

Another brew from Southern Oregon Brewing Company... this time one of my favorite varietals!

Southern Oregon Brewing Co. Nice Rack IPA poured a golden amber with some haze.  The head was a little thin and white, and the nose was herbs and citrus. 

In tasting, Nice Rack IPA had a mellow start, orange flavored hop-notes dominated but never really took a hold of my mouth like a strong IPA normally does.  There was no real bitterness at any time, and the malt just provided a slightly sweet backing to the warm marmalade flavor.

SOB's Nice Rack IPA is an incredibly drink-worthy session beer, with enough nuance and flavor to stay interesting without ever becoming overbearing.  While I wouldn't say it exemplifies a great IPA, it certainly is a great beer.
