Gotta say, I really like the date/fig/raisin/Turbinado idea. Personally, I would take the 'caramelize the fruit in wort, then puree' approach. I'll be curious to see how it comes out.
I'm probably in the minority here in all honesty. I've heard many people describe simcoe as cat piss, but to me, cat piss is a terrible smell that I've yet to associate with any hop.I don't get the cat pee from simcoe. If I did, I'd never use it again. I've been told it's cat pee, etc, but if it tastes like piss smells and you use it.... gross.
Should've said it better - I can get what people are saying when they talk about it being catty. I don't personally think it smells like a litter box remotely, but there is a character (of some sort) there that's not in the other piney hops IMO. I think Simcoe is a great hop.
Garlic, onion, yep had 'em. Just not cat pee.
Had hop juju for first time tonight. I hate this beer. Cat piss hops and way too sweet.

No luck for me. Try again next year. Looking forward to scores.
Yeah, super tough categories with a lot of entries in each one! Out of five, I only got one through. Old ale took a gold. I really thought I had some better chances this year, but at least one made it. Tough competition with lots of people making some great beer!
Congrats to all!
I only have these hops available at the moment and I am brewing on Sunday. What could I do to bitter instead for 60 minutes? I'll try and look for in my local shop for columbus
