BJCP 2015 presents the information from the BJCP's 2015 Beer, Mead, and Cider Style Guidelines as genuinely as possible. The introductory sections have been moved out of the main flow of the app as you would see them in a hardbound edition of the Guidelines; this was done strictly from a usability standpoint for anyone using this app while judging a competition. That said, the entirety of the 2015 Style Guidelines are included in BJCP 2015. More importantly, the Guidelines are presented with their intention intact. To put it precisely, if there is a word italicized or bolded for emphasis in the official Guidelines you'll find that the same emphasis is placed in the text herein.

If you are looking for crossover between the 2008 guidelines and the 2015 guidelines be sure to check out Appendix: A in the 'Intros & Appendices' section. The authors have done a fantastic job of cross-referencing the styles in multiple manners beyond just a comparison of these guidelines and the previous version.

Does exactly as its intended to do!

What's to say? It's the 2015 guidelines available on your phone. It's so much better than toting around a binder full of papers to a competition. The format of the app is the same as the 2008 app. I'm just so thankful that someone took the time to put the guidelines into app form. My hats off to you sir!

Missing Provisional Styles

The app is pretty good and certainly beats having to scroll through the 2015 BJCP Style Guide; however, it is missing the provisional styles such as New Zealand Pilsner, which makes it unusable in some cases.

Great but...

... It really needs a search option.
