An (english) IPA of mine took 3rd place in the Hudson Valley Homebrewers
Competition! I'm pretty excited! 1st and 2nd place were both taken by the
same guy. I entered for fun, didn't expect to win anything. Time to take the
recipe, the score sheets, and shoot for first next year! The judges
obviously liked different things tho, one gave me 3 points higher on the
taste than the other. Most notable needs for improvement is that it was too
light bodied and not carbonated enough, but I'd like to know more about why
the one judge really killed me on the flavor (13/20 vs the other's 16/20)
even when he stated it was very good with no apparent flaws. Oh well, I have
some ideas floating around for the next incarnation to start experimenting
with. I also need to improve the aroma (8/12), I held back on the dry hop
for this batch because I was experimenting, suppose next time I'll use more.
There was also a note about alot of sediment, but that shouldn't be too hard
to correct.
