And I can appreciate that the style may not seem like an IPA if you're going by the traditional IPA definition. I've started to accept that it has become common parlance to refer to any highly hopped beer as "____ IPA", even if the amount of hops used is the only thing it has in common with an IPA.

This fits with what Gordon Strong said in the 2015 BJCP guidelines.  At first the "colored" IPAs had different names like Cascadian Dark Ale, Northwest Red, but those weren't as clear to understand as Black IPA and Red IPA.  Of course, traditionalists balked at a Black Pale Ale or a Red Pale Ale, but Gordon said that for all intents and purposes, in the American market IPA, the acronym for India Pale Ale, doesn't exist anymore.  'IPA' as a word is any hoppy bitter beer with tons of hop aroma and flavor (and newer styles are even dialing back the bitter part).

The only thing I've read about the Brut IPA is that it was specifically formulated to be a regional style.  Someone is trying really hard to make a "San Diego-style" IPA. They just want to be different.

Brut IPA really seems like a stab at bringing the west coast, clear IPA style back into marketability by making a new version of it.

I can't claim to be an expert on the emerging style but the few I have had reminded me of a really thin pale ale with the low bitterness of those early 2010s hop burst pale ales. It's not dry, just really thin.

Doesn't scratch any itch for me. I'll take a regular pale ale over it any day.

Not sure, but I have a couple recipes from various magazines (one of which I believe was touted as the original from Social Kitchen and Brewery) that I may try out sometime soon if time permits. I know a local brewery (with a huge homebrewing background) has brewed at least one but I did not try it. Saw this thread and was hoping to find more info or experiences. Don't like the sound of too thin, no malt presence, etc so maybe I won't be brewing one of these.

I'm on the fence as well. I am just considering doing a super dry IPA sort of in this vein with sugar and appropriate mash to help it dry out. I was reading the social kitchen article you referenced last night and got intrigued a bit. I see commercial versions around here locally from time to time and I literally have had one that I enjoyed. The rest didn't even seem to come close to what I'm convinced they should be.

I haven’t tried one yet and don’t think I’m planning on trying one any time soon. But. Breweries in my local have made some, they are pretty good. Dry.
I’ve been told you can add the special ingredient either during the mash or later on. My lhbs sells it, but, IPAs aren’t my go to brew.
