Low Gravity 0.99 for a Bigger Beer

I am brewing an American Pale Ale with OG supposed to be at 1.061 and FG at 1.014. Mistakenly i forgot to take a reading before i pitched the yeast, and when i went to take a reading before i transfered to the secondary i got a reading of 0.099. Could anyone tell me what is possibly wrong.
