Default What beer, if any, would you age at room temp?

I know that belgians and some other beers are happy to age at cellar temps, 55 and the like, but are there any beers that age well at room temp 72?

I have a couple stouts and a couple porters that will hit their peak flavor at 3 months at room temp and will retain that flavor for many months after that still at room temp. My pale ales, however, lose their wonderful aroma in a couple months.

thinking any IPA would store/age well at room temps.
i mean the style was created for the half world trip to india on a 18th century sailing ship with no A/C and the drank cargo hole at stifling temps.

in a home where the temp is between 78-82 during the summer (A/C), i would think any stout or porter, or strong ale would do okay.

further considering, probably any beer that could be served from a cask thru a beer engine would qualify for ambient temp saging in my opinion......

age -on!

The IPA thing is a myth. There is no evidence that suggests the IPA was created for the trip to India. Read Mitch Steeles New book IPA. The ipas they drank back then we're slightly sour and mega hopped so that the hop character didn't dissipate over the lengthy trip.

No beer should be aged at room temp.

Fair enough... So I will keep my special-to-me beers in the fridge till I find another means of beer storage.

I would be miserable if my house was 78-82 with the a/c on during the summer.
