So the best advice, if you are unpleased with your beer, is to just wait it out...it will change! Usually for the better.
yeah, you're right. I just wanted to say how weird it is that instead of becoming good after two months from bad at the beginning, my beer went from good at the beginning to bad after two months

I seem to get this flavor any time I add a significant amount of hops. I get the normal hop flavors (citrus, tropical fruit, etc) when it is straight out of primary and even for the first few days of tapping the keg. But it quickly turns to earthy flavors within days of kegging. I've had this problem for years. I regularly see other people post about it but I never see any resolution. Boo.
