Default Anyone got an extract recipe for a hoppy brown ale?

I went to Singapore last month, and went to a great brewpub (Brewerkz in Clarke Quay, if you go to Singapore it's a must see) and they had an awesome brown ale (balestier brown ale, http://www.brewerkz.com/node/345). It tasted slightly roasty, had a nice body and great american hops aroma and some bitterness. Does anyone know a recipe for something like this?

You can kick the hops up in my Old Bog Road Brown Ale recipe. It's at 35 IBUs now, fairly balanced, but you could kick it up another 5-20 more ibus for some hoppy action.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.
