It's been forever since I posted in the 'drinker's thread.

But I'll put in one more vote for Commodore Perry IPA from Great Lakes Brewing Co.

If you live in the Northeast US, you can probably find some at a quality grocer near you.

Yes they are the same but "Scotch" refers to it being from Scotland.

I never left my beer. :-D

Scotch= Whisky
Bourbon/Rye/Blend= Whiskey.

And from what I have seen, Single Malt is always Scotch(usually very good!)

Actually not quite as simple as that!

The spelling whisky (plural: whiskies) is generally used in Canada, Japan, Scotland, and Wales, while whiskey (plural: whiskeys) is more common in Ireland and the United States. The usage is not always consistent – for example, some prominent American brands, such as George Dickel, Maker's Mark, and Old Forester (which are all made by different companies), use the 'whisky' spelling on their labels, and the US legal Standards of Identity for Distilled Spirits document also uses the 'whisky' spelling.
"Scotch" is the internationally recognized term for "Scotch whisky". It is rarely used in Scotland, where the drink is called simply "whisky".

Actually if we really really want to be pedantic .......

Scotch is a generic term for both whisky and whiskey.

In English grammar any whisky made in Scotland should be called Scots whisky.
