What category was it entered under? It may have been wrong and the smoke was not to the style guidelines.

I can't access the page to check the styles but I think there is a smoked category, isn't there? But yours does sound more experimental with the pumpkin and all.

From the specialty category guidelines:
Quote:
This is explicitly a catch-all category for any beer that does not fit into an existing style category. No beer is ever “out of style” in this category, unless it fits elsewhere.

The category is intended for any type of beer, including the following techniques or ingredients:

...

Combinations of other style categories (e.g., India Brown Ale, fruit-and-spice beers, smoked spiced beers)

maybe they meant it as, the smoke flavor doesn't go well with the rest of the beer.
