So it appears there was another underlying issue here. I opened a bottle yesterday to see if the off flavor had diminished at all and it turned out to be a gusher. It tasted just as bad, if not worse, than before. I opened another bottle out of curiosity and that too was a gusher so I took a gravity sample at it was at 1.010; my FG at bottling was steady at 1.016 so it looks like I had an infection. The bottles were very cloudy at room temp until a few days ago. Now I'll have to figure out where the infection came from.

Sorry to hear about your dilemma, but at least you've narrowed it down to the problem. What do you ferment in? Buckets, glass/plastic carboys, bathtubs? It might be worth it to spend $25 on a new plastic carboy just to see if it solves the problem. If it doesn't, then at least you have a new fermentation vessel for brewing an extra 5 gallons

I ferment in glass carboys, and I just bottled a Pliny the elder clone that was dry hopping in the same carboy after a soak in oxyclean and I didn't see or taste any problems.
