Default what beer style do you most consistently make good

Like the title says what style of beer do you make that most consitently turns out really good. Also is there a style that is the opposite that seems to never quite come out as good as you think/hope it should.

According to our water tests we should be making Stouts and Porters very well, which we do, however it is the IPA's that for some reason turn out to be absolutely spectacular. Yea we have to adjust our water to brew them, but man, our IPA's are amazing.

My IPAs always come out good, I'm usually let down by my pale ales though. Go figure!

Amber Ale, Oktoberfest, various Brown Ales are my most consistently good beers .....

My stouts and porters are good...... but, they never seem to be quite what I was hoping. Not sure why. Although, I probably don't brew them as often as some other styles and that is likely the reason.

English Bitters here. I've made above average of every style that I have brewed, but the Bitters have been AWESOME!

RO water here.

IPA's, Pale Ales, Hefeweizens are my most brewed and always good. The only beer I've brewed and didnt like was a Pumpkin Ale. It came out fine but to sweet and malty for my taste. Commercial Pumpkins are the same.

American Brown ale, Saison, and American IPA. I'm almost completely happy with my Stout recipe, and after that happens, I probably won't be brewing much outside those four styles.
