Hey all. I just got back from vacation and have a beer in secondary, it's been there for about 3-4 weeks. Looks fine, no funk in it or anything. Is this OK, just bottle as usuall or anything I need to know?

My double IPA is in the secondary now for three weeks, after being in the primary for two. I have 6 more weeks in the secondary before I bottle
