    No defrauding of the customer here, my guess is they entered it in both categories because it straddled the line between a pale ale and an IPA. Here are the BJCP guidelines on AIPA, http://www.bjcp.org/2008styles/style14.php#1b. They fit into those guidelines so they could easily consider it an IPA but they may have felt that it had a chance at the Pale Ale side as well because in hoppy beers sometimes the bigger ones win out.

    Just playing the judging system, not playing the customer.

    Isn’t it Great that a beer that is Called Sweetgrass IPA wins in the pale ale category tells me that its not an IPA at all, and should be called Sweetgrass PALE ale
    go figure I see that this happens all the time if you call a beer something its not then all you are doing is defrauding the consumer not promoting good craft beer growth
