AH, I get you now, the Imperial Black IPA right?  Final 9 out of 800 entries is nothing to sneeze about.

How does an Imperial IPA make it to finals of Cat 23??????????????????

I swear if something with peppers wins I'll lose it.

Would that technically qualify as Cat21 Spice, Herb or Vegetable Beer?

no, Jeff Fuller: Imp Black IPA?

I'd be happy with top 9 - then you have the pride of making the top ten without the disappointment of SA not making the production beer anything like what you submitted  ;)

Happy, yeah but the waiting after getting the call was pins and needles man
Pins and needles

All I wanted was the trip to the GABF for me and my wife
Of course then I would have wanted the 5K but in all reality, hanging with Jim Koch at the GABF would have been awesome

I'll let you know when I see/taste what won :D
I'd sure like to have tasted the other 8 beers, be interested to see the 4 that moved on.

I'd be shocked if it were rigged, they brewed an Imperial IPA during the hop shortage.

Egyptian Chamomile, Hawaiian Honey and Heather tips

I guess where the Heather came from was insignificant?
