I've had Evil Cousin fresh on tap and it's awesome. I've also had it bottled and had the same experience as you. It's very susceptible to poor handling and loses hop flavor and aroma really fast. It's really a shame because fresh it's fantastic.

Old Monk 10000. It was like a really bad BMC style beer with shots of tequila in it. No head, no lacing, and nothing redeeming about it. It was handily masquerading as a craft beer sold by the bottle in the craft beer section for a craft beer price. If it was crafted, it was crafted by monkeys drinking tequila.

EDIT: I would like to add that I should have known better. The bottle was made so poorly that I was a little surprised it didn't burst on the shelf. The glass of the bottle looked like that decorative glass which is saturated with bubbles. That should have been a clue.

People who haven't experienced them really has no idea how intense they actually are. To put it in perspective, I can eat Habanaro peppers like grapes. Sure, they are really hot but I'll be fine. I once ate a giant Ghost pepper whole, ruined the rest of my next two days. I had to lay down, there was a point I thought I was going to lose consciousness. And that was just the first 30 minutes after eating it. Suffering, of one form or another, continued for 2 days.
I live in Cincinnati, and there's a brewery here that makes a RIS with ghost chiles (Rivertown Death). While I like peppers and spicy food, I am not generally a fan of chile beers, but this beer is fantastically balanced. You could actually, probably, have two and not have your palate wrecked. It's delicious. It really can be done (just don't eat the peppers out of the keg...)

Just tried another realy bad beer last night. Catty Wompus from devils backbone, a fairly local brewery so I try their beers when I see them. Glad I did the mix and match 6er. The bottle says Belgium inspired ipa. It should say beer like substance hopped with moldy grass clippings.

Tried "Wisconsinite" from Lakefront Brewery. Freakin' horrible. The upfront flavor was okay, but then it turned to sour lemongrass with a horrible lingering. I usually love Lakefront - really disappointed. Maybe it was bad, who knows.

My brother and I did a tasting of like 6 craft beers at Sloppy Joe's in key west and I would say that there were fairly horrible. I haven't had a lot of "craft" beer, but to my taste, some of the worst that I have had were Sierra Nevada and Duchesse de Bourgogne.
