Default Pliny clone

Brewed a Pliny clone this afternoon using the extract recipe from the recent Zymurgy magazine. I should have had an OG of 1.072 but ended up closer to 1.062. The wort tastes very hoppy. I'm not sure what to expect since I never had the real thing. Anybody think I'm gonna have a problem being that far off on the original gravity?

A little light on the alcohol, did you add any corn sugar?

Don't fear the hops, they'll be fine!

Yeah, the recipe called for 6.5lb light DME and 0.75lb Dextrose. Both were boiled for 90 minutes. I thought the recipe looked a little light, I guess I was right

Certainly does sound like the recipe was off, I feel like there might have been a correction in one of the follow-up issues... but I don't remember what it was.

You can boiling up a pound of light DME and add it if you want, but the beer should be fine without it.

You'll probably be fine... remember, your wort always tastes waaaaay more bitter postboil than it does as a finished beer.
