Default Just popped my first homebrew in 6 years

I brewed an IPA that I picked up from Doc's Cellars here in San Luis Obispo. They had most of the ingredients ready to go, and I added a few twists like some good clover honey, about 1.25lbs and then dry hopped with centennial in a secondary. Main hops were Falconer's Flight and Magnum.
After not brewing in quite a while I was a little more than skeptical if I could pull it off solo. I always brewed with my brother, and he was the mad scientist of the duo, I was the chef. Miss those days.
Anyway I just opened my first 24 ounce as a tester, albeit only bottled for 11 days, and other than the mild hint of butterscoth this is one great IPA. My wife is absolutely loving it. Nice head and a sweet, hoppy bitter finish.

Do I want another pint of homebrew or should I read some Groo?

I tried to edit the post topic but it wont change on the forums. Oh well, the beer was so good it made me typo all over the place! Glad I got popped right cause I could only imagine the replies if I spelled pooped!

(Yes, I am going to be that guy...)

Hey, Lompoc! I was born and raised in Orcutt, but in high school had some close friends in Lompoc, so I was there a bunch.

(OK, I'm done.)

McLompoc, I know that feeling. After 13 years of brewing, I stopped brewing for seven years. I came back to it about a year ago, and happily found that it was just like riding a bicycle.
