IMO it is harder to get the flavor with an all extract batch but if you can steep grains and do a pm that should work.
On the hops I believe the are from the "Hallertau region".
From wiki on the German varieties of perle and Magnum

A high alpha acid bittering hop with mild flavor and low aromatic characteristics. Commercial examples include Sierra Nevada Torpedo, Pale Ale, and Hoptimum. 12-15% alpha acid.
