Default got 3 beers on tap, got room for 4, what do I need?

Hey everyone, So I have room for 4 cornys in my fridge and I currently have 3 filled/will be filled with Imperial/India Brown Ale (it falls between the two)7.7% ABV 104IBU, IPA 7.4% ABV 65 IBU, and Lemongrass Wheat 4.4% ABV 18IBU..

What does everyone here think I should brew in order to make a good rounded collection of beers? There is no particular style of beer I am overly opposed to so feel free to be inventive. I imagined a stout or lager, but I really want to hear what everyone has to say.

A nice mild Pale ale or a porter or stout

I do have a cocoa almond porter in fermentation...unfortunately it isn't mine lol. A buddy is trying out brewing at my place. I might have to rebrew it

I say an Irish Red, or a California Common, but then again, that is just about all I make anymore.

The most common commercial example around here is Samuel Adams Black Lager. IMO, one of their best beers. Its a relatively malty, clean lager. The color comes from debittered black malt, like Carafa III so you get the color, but very little or no roastiness.

Here are the basics: http://www.bjcp.org/2008styles/style04.php#1c

You need something really malty to balance out all those IBU's. I like the porter or stout idea. Maybe a southern english brown ale.

Since it is summer, do you think I should shy away from the darker beers? Maybe a light refreshing saison? Or do you think the lemongrass wheat will be too similar? I will see how this cocoa almond porter turns out and I may rebrew it.

Kostrizer (sp?) is pretty easy to find at any store that has a decent import selection, too.

That said, I vote for a red ale!
