I love the aroma and flavor of a hoppy IPA....... Can someone give me a good extract kit to get me there?

I love Hefe and belgian brews but IPA has a sweet spot in my heart. The aroma hops you can smell (and taste), is like heaven in a glass.......

Homebrew Heaven (they have a web site) has a great extract recipe that tries to replicate a fantastic IPA called Diamond Knot. Never tried it extract but I followed the hop schedule on an all grain.

I'm curious, what are the Homebrew shops like in Utah? I know the beer you buy is limited to 3.25% alcohol (at least it was in 2001 when I was there.) Are there any written regualtions pertaining to the hobby? Not that I think the cops are going to bust down your door, but do they address the issue somehow?

I dont have a good one for you quite yet, as IPAs also hold a special place in my heart, but one kit i did get from Midwest which is called octane IPA, is not very good, so i definitely would not reccomend that one... i will keep my eye on this thred for a good kit. my next is an extract oatmeal stout...

my first brew was an IPA. the next one i make im defently going to add more hops, i used a True Brew IPA kit i think it had around 2 oz's of hop pellets. it was decent my only problem was a tannic after taste which im blamming my self on for squeezing out the grain sack lol.

I brewed the Diamond Knot IPA clone for my second batch! It's kegged now, and I'm lovin' it!!!
IMO, an amazing beer!!! Also, Homebrew Heaven is a great shop. It's my local!

I love Henry Weinhards Pale ale. Would like a Clone of that brew and just add more aroma hops at the end of the boil.

I'm brewing the Brewer's Best IPA kit at the moment. Can't say if it's good or not though, it's still in the primary fermenter. I'll be sure to let everyone know how it is when it's ready though. You can count on that!
