I've brewed this twice as extract. 1st using all light DME, 2nd using all amber DME. The first batch with the light DME was the 2nd best IPA I've ever had with bells hopslam being the best(sorry yooper). The all amber brew was good, but I won't be making that again. Blending light DME with amber DME might be good, but if I ever brew the extract version of this again it will be all light DME.
Edit: oh, and as far as color, this is what I got using all light DME and 1lbs of Crystal 40L steeping grains
