Just tried some Hopslam that the local Liquor Barn recently tapped. IMO it drinks better with a little age on it. Anyone else share this experience?

Tastes like malt after a month or 2.

No. Didnt someone make a similar thread about some Great Divide beer recently? If you think it tastes better with age, its probably because you dont actually like IPAs as much as you think you do.

The owner of my watering hole when I lived in Indiana had a tapping party the moment she got a keg. About half way through it, she took it off. Six months later she put it back on for another tapping party. It had lost itís vibrancy. Just tasted like a run-of-the-mill IPA.

lots of hops and malt => okay to age, not okay to age depending on what you call it. Barley wine? Fine. DIPA? Somehow not okay.

Take labels and recommendations with a grain of salt.
