Suggestions on an Imperial IPA extract kit?
 
Looking for a good I-IPA with a strong "fresh" hop backbone with a real abrupt dry finish. What do you guys suggest?

A Pliny clone!

I've made Pliny clones with both extract and AG and it's one of my all time favorite IIPAs. The hops will blow you away, but it's dry and quaffable. Of course, at 8%, they can definitely sneak up on you!

You'll love it. I promise.

How close is the extract to the real thing?

It's been a while since I made it, but I seem to remember it being really good. But I did a full boil (not a small boil and then topping up with water) and the color was a bit darker.
