Bottling my IPA

Saturday night I bottled my IPA that had been dryhopped with simcoe hops. I haven't got all the specs in my software yet, but I will and I'll post all the stats up here. It's got a nice rich amber/redish color, rather citrusy hop aroma, and still maintains a substantial malt flavor. I believe it will come in about 7.5 abv, which is appropriate to style.  The tasting was on the flat beer, before it naturally carbonates in the bottle. Natural carbonation normally results in a significant flavor change. We have a few more days at least before I can really get a solid idea of how it came out. So far, however, things are looking good!
