Default Flawless Victory - Help me decide style

Okay, I have a brew named Flawless Victory, but in the past it's been a mediocre IPA and I'd like to jazz things up. The idea is a full-flavored brew with a little bite, but not too much.

The taste that will make you Finish Him....

Ideas? I'd like to draft up a recipe for brewing a week from Sunday. Thanks!

-RS

I'm not sure, but when you get this brewed, can you send my wife a couple bottles?

Can't make suggestions without your base recipe. If you're throwing out your recipe all together than that's just too broad of a question.

Haha, I'm dumping the whole thing. I'm just thinking conceptually of what would fit the name. I start with names and lables and work backwards. I've done some IPAs, Wheats, Kryptonian Reds, looking for something new. Not huge on porters, but a stout or pale ale with some character might be nice.

You should do an Imperial IPA and use some Warrior Hops and a 90 minute boil.

That does sound ferocious... Perhaps as much as one's spine removed from their body even.
