HOP DUSTED - 2ND PLACE IMPERIAL IPA - TRASH 22
When we entered the TRASH 22 competition at the end of February we honestly didn't have super high expectations on winning any awards. Heck, we haven't even been brewing for a full year, and only started all grain recipes a few months ago. To us, our biggest award would be positive feedback from the BJCP judges. Of course our family and friends are going to tell us that our beer is great, but we wanted an unbiased opinion on our work. We wanted to know what we are doing well, and what we can be improving on when we brew. Our IPA, Hop Dusted, was awarded 2nd Place in the Imperial IPA category! We knew it was a good beer, but it felt great to be recognized as a top beer out of the 604 total entries.
The whole experience of the TRASH 22 banquet was great. We got to try tons of home brews, talk to other brewers, and got more information on the organization as a whole. I'm sure we'll compete again next year with a few more entries.
