I like more hops on a beer.
I find some Scottish ales a little unbalanced.

Sounds good to me but I have been told before that I am not worthy...

I'm not a fan of Scottish Ales myself. They all have a weird twang and a slight acid taste that I don't find yummy at all.

It isn't working for me, but I think this is the recipe you were trying to link to.

Oh, and put me in the "I hope I like it because I have a batch going now" camp. I'm going to be transferring it to secondary and adding 1 oz. of whiskey soaked oak chips today.

I like them once in a while, although it's been years since I made a batch. My former brewing buddy was a nutcase on them. I'll buy a pint or a sixer when I want some.

I'm a fan. It isn't my favourite style but I like the malt focus. It is a good style to drink here in the wet, cool winter of the PNW when served at the appropriate temperature as a cold spritzy beer isn't what I'm looking for. Brew what you like, not everyone is going to like every style.
