Is that a bad thing? I mean, the point of an iipa is to showcase hops, so wouldnt fruity hop juice be the ideal?

Fruity hop juice actually sounds kind of awesome imho...

I've brewed fruity hop juice a couple times. It's awesome when you are new at brewing and you create something that tastes different. But it's more juice-like in flavor and less identifiable as beer. Especially when you start throwing in tons of Citra, Topaz, Amarillo, Galaxy, and similar fruity hops.

If someone gave me a glass of fruity hop juice before I knew anything about brewing, there would be no way I would believe it was beer I was drinking. I'm a total hophead, but I guess I prefer beer flavor with lots of hops. Not hop juice with little to no beery-ness.

You need to really think about the % of your additions (beginning, middle, late, dryhop) in order to have something like PtE. Brewing that way is definitely a craft. To produce something smooth and beer-like with tons of hop character, but not so much that it yield "juice".

The OP has the right idea, but may want to shift the hops around a bit and use less overall. Though I wonder how the higher OG (but similar FG as Pliny) will work here in the end if he were to brew as is. Thoughts? I think he needs more early & middle additions, and less late & dryhop additions.

Remember, PtE only uses 12.5 oz. total hops for about the same batch size in the fermenter:
-----(Hop Additions = 28% early, 14% middle, 28% late, and 30% dryhop)

So you will have hop juice if you're upping that to 20 oz. hops and follow something like:
-----(Hop Additions = 10% early, 10% middle, 40% late, and 40% dryhop)

The more hops added late, the more that fruity/juicy character will dominate. Not to mention he is ALSO using fruity Conan yeast. Pliny uses clean Cali yeast.
