IPA secondaries are the worst, because they are all "I smell like finished beer, but you can't have me yet neener neener neener"

The hop aroma can degrade pretty quickly if left too long. I dry hop all my IPAs for no more than 5-7 days.

Long time? Interesting. 7 to 14 maybe. However I have done both. I usually fridge it after 14, maybe on 21 day I tap it. Co2 to keep it good and charged. By then it's carbonated and ready to enjoy. Cheers keep em coming
