For carbonation I force carbed at 30psi, then set to 12 psi for about 3 days. After that, I turned the psi down to about 8 for serving. I think my issue has something to do with CO2. It seems like the hops issue presented itself when I changed psi to 8. I set it back to 12 tonight and I swear the hops aroma /flavor is more pronounced. I also didn't purge my keg before I racked the beer, so I'm also wondering if I'm dealing with oxidation aftermath.

I am having the same problem. Had keg at 40F and 10 PSI. Will back off temperature to 50 and drop CO2 to 5psi
Weirdest thing it was a Two Hearted clone that now tastes like Budweiser.
I want my beer back.

Umm either this post has hyperbole of epic proportions or you did something very wrong.

Thanks for all the replies, it looks like my latest intuition is correct....oxidation. The article in the link below sums up exactly what I am experiencing. Makes sense now that my other two IPAs suffered the same fate, guess I didn't want to see the problem, was lazy, etc... I'll resurrect this thread in a couple months after the next IPA is kegged (after purging O2!) to let you know how it goes.

Yeah ipas are pretty delicate in that regard. At least you've seemed to have found the culprit!

So how do you think you oxygenated your IPA? Dry hop with whole leaf hops like the article?

Probably a SMASH with the 7.5 oz of Citra hops I have left from the above brew

I think not purging the keg of oxygen before racking is what did it. I referenced the article more to illustrate the symptoms, not so much the method.

Ahh the dreaded oxidation. Well lesson learned I guess. The first time I kegged I was told to purge the headspace a few times with co2. Never understood for a few brews and then it dawned on me. D'oh! Makes sense now...
