To follow on to the Charlie talk, I believe he's also stated that at this point in time, HSA is only really a problem once you've locked down absolutely everything about your process like a pro.

Maybe detecting HSA flavor depends on how fast the batch is consumed?  If you drink it fast enough, it doesn't have time to develope the wet cardboard flavor perhaps?

That's what I've always thought.  It seems to take a couple months for the oxidation to get bad enough that it really effects the beer.
