Anyone from the Midwest knows that Three Floyds Brewery's Robert the Bruce is the best Scottish Ale one can drink stateside. Unfortunately they aren't distributed out here in Colorado so like any good homebrewer I am going to make the beer I love to drink.

This is from their website:
Robert the Bruce - 7.0% ABV 30 IBUs
A bold Scottish ale with a complex malty body derived from roasted and crystal malts balanced with just the right combination of hops. This ale pours a deep ruby color, has a sweet malty nose with layered caramel and roasted notes and a full body. Robust yet smooth, Robert The Bruce is a malt loverís delight.

I found the following grain bill on another brew board and was wondering what hops would everyone recommend I use?

Ibus:30 All at begining of Boil
90 Minute Boil
MashIn 162 F Hour Rest
Yeast: Fullers

Colour 18 Srm

Malt 85% 2Row US
