Trapped! Trapped Like Rats!

Trapped! Trapped Like Rats!

Last night I fell victim to a unique and pretty trap from a young opponent in the South Carolina State Championships. I don't want to preface the combination too much so I'll simply ask this...

In the below position, I intended 22.fxe5 fxe5 23. dxc4 dxc4 24. Ref2 with what I felt was a promising kingside attack. What did I miss and can you find the key variation resulting in a trapped piece on the queenside?

I've included the full game below with light comments. How many of the variations did you spot?
