Default keg and hop aroma

Hi all,

Is it possible I've lost some of the aroma from my beer when I kegged it?

Long story short I got my beer in the keg and a couple of times I had to release the head pressure in the keg. Eas time I did I got the beautiful hop aroma from my beer but now that I'm actually drinking the beer, theres not much on the nose?

Is that possible? Or is it likely that when I relieve the keg head pressure I was just getting a 'blast' of the aroma?

I got the hop aroma during fermentation too.

Hop aroma fades. I would think numerous relievings of the keg over time will help to diminish it quicker as well.

I would think you'd have to do it quite a bit and with more time than you are experiencing...
