Sloth IPA

Brewing my own beer is something I've wanted to since I had my first good beer. I say "good beer", because I assure you that AB did not inspire me.
So here it is, my first beer ever bottled, appropriately titled "Sloth IPA" (india pale ale) due to the time it not only took to start after having the supplies, but the time it took to make the beer itself (which is not recommended for bacteria growth). To be honest, it wouldn't have felt right any other way.
That green nugget at the top of the beer is an assortment of cascade and simcoe leaf hops. I am hoping this will add immense hop character to the beer, which is already quite floral.
I have to wait 2 weeks until I am suppose to drink it, but after initial taste-tests, I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, and it makes me excited to start the next beer.
