Better Brewing: Hoppy Beers (courtesy of Russian River)

Thanks to Andy for showing me this post on Brew Monkey from Russian River's brewer/owner Vinnie Cilurzo on ten ways to improve hoppy home brews.  I'd like to see explanations for the rationale behind some of these points, but Russian River has a lot of credibility when it comes to brewing ultra-hoppy beers, so I'm willing to take on faith these empirical discoveries.  I'm not sure how feasible the oxygen purging is for home brewers, but the water chemistry and crystal malt points are definitely interesting things to play around with.
