You probably have a ton of yeast byproducts in there from the spike in temp. They'll clean up a lot of it. Good idea on locking it away for a while, preferably in the 60's, and forgetting about it.

I'm going to put it out of sight for three weeks and check again. Thanks for the help, Folks.
Yeah, don't do that. I don't care if your temps were pefect. 3 day old beer almost always tastes like sewage. Yeast make a big mess of things in the first week and then they come back in like good little doozers and sweep up all their garbage. Your beer will be fine.
