I really only age imperial stouts, barley wines, sours, wild ales and lambics. Any IPAish beer isn't a good candidate for aging, as the hops will fade out of the flavor profile over time. There are obviously some exceptions to that rule, but I don't age Hopslam, Sculpin or Pliny The Elder. Those babies are meant to be drank while fresh.
Awesome. Thanks for the info. I did a little more research and will be putting my other two in the basement in a cabinet for a while. The underneath of our front porch will be perfect I think. Poured walls, constant temp...just need a cabinet.
