Some people don't realize how quickly hoppy beers degrade, especially our LCBO overlords.

Noticeable differences after 1 month, not the same beer after 2.

Or the guy holding onto an ENTIRE CASE of this beer for a few months after it's release.

I had always heard this, but never experienced it until now actually.

As of this past weekend I had 3 cans of Thrust! left, all of which had been refrigerated since buying it on release day it. I've had 2 of the last 3 cans this week and they are very different from the first week of drinking it. It's still very enjoyable but definitely different.

I actually found that it tasted better about 2 weeks after the release once it had time to settle and it's still tasting just as fresh now as it did last month.

Karma is flying off the shelves! Grabbed the last 4 bottles at Queens Quay yesterday. Guy said they had close to 100 the day before.

The Motley is a different beast because of all the Brett and the barrels. It's got a whole lot more going on than just being an IPA. That said, I probably wouldn't hang on to it for months and months. I'm going to drink my last sometime this summer.
