Congrats on the Citra. I'll bet the Imperial Pumpkin is awesome, too. I've noticed that subjectiveness plays a part in these comps. All that really matters is whether or not you enjoy it. Medals are great, but I don't want to be stuck with a first place beer that I don't really like.
EDIT: I think Driver is referring to Hops Bops. I haven't received my medal from that, either. Apparently, it was a real mess. I'm still not convinced that they sent me the right score sheet, but they say they did....and now the beer is gone.....and it was pretty awesome.
