Keep the beer very cold while storing is a good idea. You can also mess with hop extracts, but they tend to be expensive and difficult to dose on the homebrew scale.

Thanks for all the great information, everyone!
This definitely puts my mind at ease.
Here are a couple supplemental questions:
How do commercial brewers retain hoppiness (or are the beers we drink always fresh enough to retain all that goodness)?
If hoppiness is so volatile. what's going on in big, "ageable" IPAs that allows the hoppiness to stick around? Just an insane amount of hops?
