I would brew a 1.060 APA with the Maris Otter, the carared, flaked barley, and the Wyeast Scottish, bittered with the Columbus to 40 IBUs, with 1 oz. each additions of Columbus for flavor and aroma. (like 15 min and 0 min, or 20 min and 5 min).

Something like that.

Yes, 5 gallons.

My local microbrewery uses the Scottish yeast in their Single Malt IPA. Its good stuff.

Jolly-
How much Columbus hops do you have?
I like making something I call 1492, with all Columbus (rediculous amounts) and I really like the results. Only for the hop monsters though.
With the current hop crisis, it's probably not going to happen for me any time soon but here's the basic recipe. Extract with grains;
5 gallons
steep 14oz.crystal 80L and
2oz.roast barley at 150 for 25min.
60min. boil
6lbs.Muntons light DME
add 1oz.Columbus hops in a nylon at each of these times;
55min.
45min.
35min.
25min.
15min.
5min.
add another ounce of Columbus for dry hops
Wyeast american2 #1272
This should be an easy recipe to convert to all-grain.
It's an insane amount of hops but the beer sure is goooood! cheers,tim

You could brew a porter with those ingredients. I'd recommend the Wyeast 1768 Scottish ale strain. You might want to use another hop variety for finishing.

I was thinking maybe a barley wine?

Tim, I like insane hop amounts! I have about 8 oz so I could do you hop schedule.

I have many other finishing hops to use, but thought maybe a blend of colombus and cascade could go well together.

Cascades would work will as a finishing hop for a beer bittered with Columbus.

Tim, the thought of boiling 6 nylons in the kettle is making me cringe! :-)

Jolly, you could make a real nice hoppy red with those ingredients too.
