Default Dry hopping my Spruce Tip ideas??

I have a Spruce tip Beer in the primary right now:

Made up of

SBB's – Blonde Spruce Tip Ale
2gal batch size

1lb Briess 6 Row Brewers Malt
2lbs Weyermann Pale ale (2 Row Barley Malt)
1lb Weyermann Pale Ale (2 Row Barley Malt) *

1 oz Amarillo Pellet Hops
1 oz Simcoe Fresh Hops
.25 oz Chinook Pellet Hops

1 Teaspoon Spruce Essence

½ Safale S-05 Yeast


*This lb of Weyermann pale ale malt was toasted at 250 degrees for 15 minutes.


My question is what do you guys think of the dry hopping on with simcoe and amarillo? I am going for a pine taste, similar to a beer I had from the Skagway Brewery in Skagway Alaska. I went very light on essence of spruce because of reviews here on HBT so I want to get a little bit more pine taste as well as hop flavor.

No experience with spruce essence, but I have been to the Skagway Brewing Co and had their spruce tip beer...

My only advice would be to start small with your spruce extract additions...you can always add more, you can't take it out.

Simcoe/Amarillo combo is a great dry-hop combination, but the citrus aroma you'll get might clash with the spruce. Amarillo is especially citrusy, in my opinion...maybe just Simcoe...
