Well, if it was over 110-120 degrees, you may have "cooked" your yeast. Do you have another package of yeast? I'd go ahead and pitch a new package, if the first yeast was put into hot water.
If you're buying more yeast, you may want to buy a 3 pound package of malt extract, too, and add that as well. You've got a very low gravity "light" beer there, but with enough hops for a regular beer. You'll have about a 3.5% ABV if you used dry extract, and only 2.8% ABV if you used liquid extract. I'd also suggest a hydrometer- it's a necessity for brewing, in my opinion.
