The idea of cutting back on the malt is to trim down the malty sweetness
of the beer and make the beer not as heavy more drier and waterery in flavor.
In a lighter beer such as this adding more hops
is not the way to go cause all your going to do is add more bitterness and end up giving the beer an unpleasant hoppy after taste.
If your concerned abought alcohol percentage
you can adjust that by adding
some rice syrup solids during the boil.
The rice solids will only add alcohol
and not effect the body of the beer at all.
