Default Two Hearted Ale

what makes this beer taste pretty bad out of bottle but really good from the tap?

I eat the stuff at the bottom of a carboy for breakfast!

Probably old bottles.

I had had both, and they are very close to each other. Make sure where you buy the bottles from goes through the beer quickly. That's the most likely cause.

I think the bottles are ok, but make sure you get it fresh, like any IPA. And yes, the tap has always been better IMO though.

They also had an infection issue last year. I would hope that you wouldnt be buying 8+ month old IPA but its a possibility:
Ferm Chamber on top of Keezer / Through Wall / All in One Build

Primary: Two Hearted Clone[B]
Secondary: Table Red Wine, Table White Wine
Kegged:Oberon Clone, "Campfire" Hoppy Red Ale, Brown Trout Stout, Cider
Bottled: Random stuff(Cider, Mead, Wines)
Bulk Aging: Red wine, Blueberry "Brandy"
Up Next: Citra Blonde, Kolsch, IPA, IPA, IPA
