    "There is a limit of 600 paid entries."

    Is this the limit for the whole comp? I might register promptly then!

    For scope, there was about 450 entries last year in NSW and 550 in VIC
    Is there a chance it will go over 600? yes, is it likely? no

    Thanks. First comp I'm entering, so it's all very unknown.

    Hi Peter, can you please clarify something with the AABC style guide?

    Category 12 (specialty IPA) specifies session strength is an option for specialty IPAs, but I can’t find anywhere that specifically allows session American IPAs (11.2).

    So I could do a session Belgium IPA but not American!

    Hoping a common sense approach would apply and American and English varieties would be okay?

    Thanks, Heath

    (Before anyone says, I know it’s almost futile entering a session IPA when the judges are having flights of IIPAs!)

    My reading of the AABC Style guide is that any of the defined Category 12 Speciality IPAs can be of session strength including a Belgian IPA.

    A session strength IPA in my view would be best entered as a Cat 5.1 American Pale Ale

    Cheers
    Peter
