Default American Ales

I have no experience with American Ales.I would like to try a few out. I need the best one in your opinion. Great Hop flavor and aroma...extract only. I hear the dog fish head clone is good? Which recipe?

Introduce me to American ales....

My first beer was the Pale Ale kit from 7-Bridges Cooperative, it was really good.

Or you could browse the HBT recipe database and pick something that sounds good to you.

Pliny the Elder Double IPA, OR Stone's IPA clone....both really hoppy, great aroma, and perfect with nearly every food pairing (IMHO).

AHS Blonde Ale Kit. Good hoppy but not IPA hoppy. This is the best golden ale I have done.
