Whatcha got there, Creeps?

That sir would be my first ever kegged beer.  We called it El Diablo IPA.  El Dorado hops for bittering and aroma, Polaris and Mt Hood for flavor.  Tastes freaking great.  Kegging is awesome.

We did force carb.  Beer was cold at carbing, but a few hours later all I was getting was head.  So we let it sit over night and now its pouring pretty well.  The nice thing is, normally we'd just bottle and wait 4 weeks.  Instead Im drinking it a day after "bottling day"  We did bottle some too and Im still pretty new to kegging but the beer tastes great.  Good taste up front and then a bitterness that hits you a few minutes later.  I can get you the recipe if you want.  Nothing too hard, all extract actually

Sounds great! I'm pretty far off from kegging and force carbing, but it does lend to an awesome benefit of drinking beer shortly after fermentation is complete. I believe I've seen that there should be some rest after kegging/force carbing in other posts I've read. 

I'm not currently much of an IPA guy just yet, but I'll gladly save that recipe for future use!
