Not exactly word for word there,hudy. Here's the link y'all; http://www.bjcp.org/2008styles/style14.php
It just got me how everyone wants to cut out the hops,then all the base malts,etc. You can't cut out the base malts. Then you got no enzymes to convert the starches with. Geezuz got damn stupid shizz almighty...

I'd be in...but the restrictions do seem quite arbitrary. I would certainly lean on Southern Hemisphere hops you have negelected to exclude.

If I were to ever open a brewery developing a delcious American IPA not using all the expensive hops would be high priority and a definite necessity in my line up.

Just trying to get some thoughts flowing besides the obvious comments of no hops, no malt, no yeast which we have already seen in the thread..

For me this is an extension of our hobby that I was hoping some folks would take a little more seriously. I have made many great IPAs and consumed many both commercial and homebrewed. One common thread seems the be the C hops, Amarillo, and Simcoe.. So I was just thinking a good little contest would be a way to get some new idea's flowing..

So far I don't think that we have come up with a clear outline to a contest yet, but I would like the basis to be an America IPA, without the C-hops, Amarillo, & Simcoe.. I am certainly open to add more hops to a "restricted list", but once we remove all the hops we seem to run out of a contest right? :O

I don't see the big deal. Brew with what you want if your goal is to learn about hops. Changing a focus hop in a recipe from Amarillo to Southern Cross and still making a tasty IPA isn't rocket science. This is not an obscure idea. Why does it have to be a contest?

There's a reason all the IPAs that are popular and that we like have those hops in them. There's a reason there's a citra shortage.

Never suggested it was a big deal, just looking for some new idea's.

Why a contest?? Why not??

This is exactly why I thought a contest would be a fun way to get some new ideas without brewing 5 different IPAs at the same time. Just saying it could be a cool way to get some more ideas.

I know, I understand, was just messing around. Continuing on that note, if you want some ideas for recipes without those hops, check beer advocate for all the beers rated 90 or less, then you'll have some guidelines
