Lol.

It's not that I'm unhappy, it was just a taste test.

I was merely trying to figure out where the bitterness was coming from since I was under the assumption that dry hopping would not add bitterness.

I know to age the bottles, and the conditioned bottles may not taste even close to what it does now.

Well, just FYI.

After 4 days in the bottle compared to 2. This bitterness is astronomically better. Still a little bite, but nowhere near what it was. Plus I'm getting more sweeter, style appropriate tastes.

It's interesting tasting this as it goes along.
