I hop-burst, so I am adding more hops later in the boil than normal. This provides the bitterness needed, and loads the beer with hop flavor and aroma.

You can brew most styles successfully with extract. Things to consider:

The general rule of thumb is to use LME as fast as you can, but really it all depends on how you store it.

If you refrigerate it, waiting 3 months to use it is fine. At cold temps, LME can last. ...
