Default Best beer kit on amazon

Ok, so I've got a fifty dollar gift certificate to Amazon and I figured I'd get a beer kit with it. I've done one brew so far with a mr. Beer, but I have everything I need to make a 5-10 gallon batch except the ingredients. I like flavorful beers- and something hoppy. What should I get?

How hoppy? I would recommend an APA or an IPA depending on how hoppy you want to go.

I am looking for a recommendation as to brand. Do I get Coopers? Or are there better ones?

Brewer's Best kits are pretty solid. Definitely a notch above the Coopers kits.

The Cascadian Black IPA looks interesting, and the Stone Cold India Pale Ale. Both look like good kits. Good luck, have fun, and welcome to HBT
