First BJCP competition
Received my score sheet today for my IPA and received a 37.5. Only real dings were Hazyness and alcohol. It was fermented low 60s and was 6.8abv. None the less I'm happy!

Congrats... I know it's not a place but I'm right there with ya... I am eagerly waiting for my score sheets from my first comp. I entered a doppelbock and a wit and a cream ale. None placed but I can't wait to see the score sheets. I really thought the DB would have faired well but the comp I entered was the dominion cup here in VA and it's the largest HB comp in the state. I suppose I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up out of 520 entries but...what the hell, right?

Nice job. That's a good score.

This comp had 548 entries and 44 just in the IPA category. I'm currently at the beach and on my iPad. When I get home I'll post the recipe

Very well done. I just was in my first comp this summer and I'm dying to do it again.

37.5? Awesome! Never scored that high, though I've placed with lower scores. Great job.

Yea that's what was at the top of the sheet. At the bottom it had a 39. Was thinking 37.5 was my final.

I'm actually surprised I didn't place.

With that many entries you probably needed to score at least in the low 40s to place.
