We discovered Belhaven Scottish Ale at the pub a few weeks ago and find it quite delicious.

But yeah, it can be way overdone. 

It also depends on what you call "hoppy".

The bitterness in hops comes from alpha acids, and the IBUs that brewers use is a measure of that. The aroma is altogether different—it comes from volatile compounds that boil off when the wort is boiled. To get a lot of hop aroma you add the hops later in the boil, to get more flavor and less aroma you add them earlier, and to extract more alpha acids you add them at the start of the boil. Alpha acids take time and heat to extract and chemically react with other compounds. The timing, varieties, and quantities of hops added during the boil is called the hop schedule.

There are a very few beers every enthusiast should calibrate him/herself on. One of these is Pilsner Urquell, the original pilsner. It has a phenomenal hop schedule—huge amounts, added at many intervals—but the variety used is Saaz, a low alpha acid breed native to the region. The hop flavor and aroma of this beer is beguiling but it's not particularly bitter.

There are a lot of brewers these days riding the IPA bandwagon for commercial reasons but who don't want to scorch your taste buds. They make extremely aromatic beers. Lagunitas is one of the best at it, as is Dogfish Head. Unfortunately they get lumped in with breweries like Sierra Nevada as making "hoppy" beer.

There are people who genuinely enjoy bitter flavors. There are people who enjoy hop aroma. We've just got to get them to agree on terms to describe beer so that both don't get convolved into the the word "hoppy".

SNPA is too hoppy. Only 37 IBU, which tells me that that scale is bullshit. All I taste with SNPA is resin. Get hold of something else with a bigger IBU and it might be much more smooth and drinkable. Or don't. There's a world of great beers out there right now. We live in wonderful times, our minority president notwithstanding.

Yes, everyone's palate is different. Personally, I've found IPA's and any beer claiming to be hoppy to be bitter and - for me - undrinkable.

 
Have you tried letting the IPA warm up a little in a glass? That makes a too-bitter hoppy taste open up and sweeten for my taste buds.

2013 article I'm sure has been posted here before. She makes some assumptions I don't care for. As the wise man said, 90% of everything is crap. So if someone makes a hoppy beer and people love it, it will be copied by brewers who might not know what they're doing. There are lightly-hopped beers that taste like a skunk's hinder, and there are intensely hopped beers that are wonderful. /debunk

due to popularity Arcadia had to scale back their distribution area because they couldn't meet demand
they're in a new larger brewery now

Our Nut Brown Ale is a British Inspired Brown Ale. This medium bodied ale is rich and smooth, boasting lots of roasted coffee & chocolate notes.

speaking of MI beers, Arcadia Ales Hopmouth is my favorite
it's a double IPA but you wouldn't know it from the taste
they use a Scottish ale yeast , it pairs well with any food
I find my alcohol consuption the last couple of years seems to be overwhelmingly with food
I have gotten out of the habit of drinking just for drinking's sake
their brewery is not to far from me and I went on a tour of the place a few years ago

I had some of this Great-Lakes-Region (Chicago) beer recently:

Tasty stuff, I liked it better than their other varieties, but they're all pretty good "drinking beers".

Yes, I buy that pretty often.  It's a little more expensive but worth it - one of my favorites.
