I seem to be noticing that the beers I drink early on from my kegs taste less bitter than the last few beers. My kegs do not move for 1 to 2 months while they are being emptied. Is it possible that the hop oils are separating to the top during this time causing the last few beers to be more bitter?
My version of the events is that beer wasn't completely fermented initially, and those residual sugars initially masked bitterness, which, as sugars get fermented, becomes more prominent. In keg setup the effect of that later fermentation may not be as visible, but I sometimes notice it with bottles (even when I bottle after I reach calculated FG and check FG readings over a week or so).
