I have bottles here that I made that are probably 18-20months old. Maybe don't taste as good as they did at their peak, but definitely not spoiled.

Anything with alot of hops are going to fade quicker than something like a stout would, having said that, I have had some of my hoppier ones 6 month after bottling, and while not as good as fresh, still not bad.

1 to 2 years if bottled and naturally carbonated, if you use CO2 I think 3 to 6 months.
