Default DME varieties

I found a recipe for the DogFish Head 90 Min IPA that says to use DME. I've never used DME and I'm not really sure what types are out there. The recipe doesn't specify a variety, such as light, dark, pale, etc. Can anyone suggest a variety of DME that would work for the 90 Min IPA?

I'm excited to brew the 90 min. It's my fave.

Unless the recipe specifically calls for a certain type of extract (same for both DME and LME) it's good procedure to use light, pale, or extra-light. You should get your coloring, and other malt flavors from your steeping grains. You never really know for sure what the manufacturer used to get his amber or dark extract to that degree of color (and flavor).
