A few commercial examples I enjoy: snake dog (flying dog), hop juice (two brothers), dogfish 60/90 minute.

Which kits from AHS would I like?

Seconding Pliny. It's a $83 recipe on sale for $57, and has over 1 lb. of hops!

Anything they sell @ AHS is a good kit at a fair price.

I also recommend doing the PM (Partial Mash) recipe. Spend $4.99 on the grain bag they sell. You're gonna save a buck or two on the PM kit vs. the straight extract kit, to help off-set the cost of the bag.

If you're not planning on making a starter, then yes.
