Default Omg! Way better with age!

I just want to say thanks to all the help and guidance on here! I had this beer right after the 3 week carbing period and it was good, but after almost 4 month it is WAY better!

Its funny how the last beer of the batch is always the best.

I can't wait till the end of next month when my IPA will be peaking in time for our anniversary. The Whiskely Ale will be better by then,but may take longer to be good. When this darn FV finally gets clean,I can brew my English bitter.

Cheers! What type of beer? My Furious Pro Series Kit from NB is in its 4th week in bottles and tastes amazing. I'm afraid to let it age too long ...

Would IPAs benefit from 3-4 months bottle conditioning also?

Generally,no. IPA's & other hoppy beers are meant to be drunk young.

This is my experience as well. The bright, fresh, citrus flavors and aromas tend to dissipate very noticeably after a month or so.
