One thing to remember always is that BJCP os judging to style. If you send a West coast APA to Tulsa it will be treated according to their interpretation of style.
If an American judge is tasting Duesseldorf Altbier And hasnt been to Duesseldorf can you fault him for not getting it right? Their arent good American commercial examples of the style.
Judging is subjective based on tastes and perception. If they charged more for competitions there might be room to complain.
