I will be pouring for PALE in the homebrewers tent

Just as a quick follow-up.
Put it in as Belgian Specialty with description that it was hopped as an IPA

Scored a 31 with comments that said "this seems like a really good  WIT beer that is over-hopped"
My thought, "Yes - that is why it is in Belgian Specialty."

On a side note, I have re-brewed the same recipe as a straight WIT and I will see how that one fairs.

Thanks for all your previous input.

Anyone know if Milwaukee also put in placings?
One of my beers scored a 40, advanced to mini-BOS, but nothing in the place box.
Had high hopes for it as it has placed at every other comp it has been entered into this year.

Agreed, but if you added spices/fruit and can detect them in the beer, don't forget them in your description.

Is it safe to assume saying it is a "Belgian White" means it has Orange Peel and Coriander?

Thanks to both of you - 16E  it is!

I brewed up a clone of Deschutes Chainbreaker and want to put it in a local BJCP comp.

Was debating between 23A. Specialty Beer or 16E. Belgian Specialty Ale.

Any advice from experienced BJCP folks is appreciated.

I also know what you put in the "Special Ingredient/Classic Style" section is important
Here is what I have so far

"White IPA Attempt at creating a beer similar in style to Descheutes Chainbreaker.
White beer hopped to 56 IBU with Cascade and Centennial."

Thanks!
