Looking for a good I-IPA with a strong "fresh" hop backbone with a real abrupt dry finish. What do you guys suggest?

You'll love it. I promise.

How close is the extract to the real thing?

It's been a while since I made it, but I seem to remember it being really good. But I did a full boil (not a small boil and then topping up with water) and the color was a bit darker.
