Maybe an imperial red IPA... Along the lines of a GL Nosferatu.

Something different? How about a Black ESB. MO, crystal 60, about 4oz of chocolate and then black patent for the remaining color adjustment. Willamette at 60 for 45 IBU, 3 oz of EKG in the whirlpool and 1-2 oz of Centennial for dry hops. S-04 fermented in the upper 60s.

I like the Maibock idea, and would also suggest a Bopils or a Dortmunder Export

Landbier.

Pils, Munich, and a touch caramunich. Bitter with Perle, and use a healthy dose of noble hops to finish. 830 or 835 to ferment.

Drink young.

Go for an indiscriminate hoppy lager. Pils plus a little munich or all pale ale and then hop it similar to an APA. Don't be afraid to use those hops in an unusual combination. Cascade and Mt. Hood will work well in that style. You could also mix in some of those noble/noble-ish hops.
