On the same scoresheet the judge said that my O-fest was "slightly astringent" and then later said it had "good mouthfeel." Still a little baffled by that one!
I also entered my Ruination clone into the IPA category just for kicks and it was ding-ed for not being hoppy enough for the style!!
Yeah, I guess nearly 4lbs of hops per barrel and 120ibus is a little underhopped for an IPA. LMAO! Now when I enter comps I don't expect to do well. What I'm looking for is entertainment from the scoresheets. Don't get me wrong, judging beer is A LOT harder than most people think, but sometimes judges are either getting entries mixed up or they're just plain crazy!
