Keep in mind that BJCP comps don't judge "what's the best beer" they judge what is the best example to style.
How can you say they teach you something when thread after thread people complain about questionable judging conditions, lack of feedback and beers that place in one comp and score bad in another? That's why I got out of them. I felt I was chasing around trying to solve problems that never existed. My friends told me it was good and when I drank commercial craft beer, in many cases I preferred mine to theirs.
It's kind of like when you are constantly hitting yourself in the head with a hammer. It sure feels good when you stop.
I've had it with competitions. I like my beer and my friends like it too, that's all that matters.
You've already solved your problem.
I scored very low on the picky and arrogant scales but higher on the irritating scale (no surprise there).
That would be cool.
That's what's known as "mash hopping" and the effects are supposedly much different than those of FWH. I don't remember the exact differences but they must not be much of an advantage as mash hopping is not terribly popular.
I believe Rogue's 60 IBU's is measured after the brew. Tinseth and Rager are projected estimates.
