I usually don’t get into the whole style guidelines thing, but that sounds more like a pale ale. What were the IBUs at? Don’t take the pale ale comment as a dig, I am actually really interested in what your recipe was, could you share it? It’s been one of my (and I’m sure a lot of other people’s) goals to make a low-ABV hoppy pale ale that smelled and tasted IPA-like but still had enough body to stand up to the hops. It’s very hard to get a good balance, every time I’ve tried it ends up tasting like hop-steeped tea.

One thing I’ve been thinking is mashing a little on higher side to gain some non-fermentables that will compete with the hops (if you do extract you can steep additional crystal grains or add maltodextrine or other). Maybe OG of around 1.042 or so. Use almost exclusively late hop additions to get to around 50-60 IBUs (this might be a little high). Use a yeast that doesn’t rip through sugar to try to get a FG of around 1.014 or so, you don’t want it drying out or it will turn out like the above-mentioned tea (trust me). That would come out to around 3.7 ABV and 140 calories per beer.

Sorry, just re-read this. Have you not heard of Pliny the Elder? Get thyself to a bottleshop, pronto, or have someone ship you a bottle.

I don't take it as a dig at all, I didn't really pay attention to the style guide lines of it. I suppose you couldn't just think of it as a really overhopped, light pale ale but the bitterness of it in my opinion puts it in an IPA category. I kind of wanted to go for a founders all day IPA type beer. I actually went the opposite route, and mashed pretty low. I mashed at about 150° to try to dry out a little bit so that the hop flavor and bitterness would shine through.

Here's the recipe:

Notes
apparently, I did not aerate my wort enough. Due to warmer groundwater temperatures, I had to slow the the flow of wort coming through the pump which therefore did not aerate as much as normal, which is why I don't think it attenuated fully.
