Welcome to the hobby, obsession.... Try some in about a week and see how it tastes. If it it tastes hot or solvent-like dump it and start again.
I think the other aspect is that there's fallacy in assuming that a commercial beer, even a classic style example, would automatically win. Condition makes a difference, the commercial beer may not be at peak flavor, and commercial brewers make sacrifices for production reasons that homebrewers don't always have to. It may be a good example and would score well, but it's probably not a perfect example.
