Default First Keg of IPA!

Hi all,
Celebrate with me...! I just tapped my first IPA keg. It features Falconer's Flight hops in the schedule, and 4 oz of fresh Cascade in the secondary, 4 oz of priming sugar and a little patience.... WOW!

Cheers!

In honor of your IPA, I will go have a couple glasses of my Scottish /70. Always looking for a reason to celebrate with a beer.
