Default Hops for piney aroma?

Good morning. I was wondering what hops used as aroma hops would add more of the "piney" smell and flavor. Thanks!

I think Chinook and Simcoe (and maybe Columbus) would be good piney choices

I dry hopped a recent IPA with 1 oz ea. of Chinook and Simcoe and it had a lovely piney aroma. I'm going to do the same thing soon for my Holiday beer.

Not quite sure if you're interested, but you can find spruce oils online that would add the "piney" notes you're looking for. Also, grains of paradise are great to use when brewing holiday beers. They have a nice spicey, piney taste and smell that goes perfectly with a holiday beer!

Chinook smells more like cat pee to me than pine. Simcoe is more piney IMO. Northern Brewer seems more earthy to me than anything.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm not familiar with Grains of Paradise, but that is also an interesting suggestion.

That's funny because Simcoe reminds me of cat pee, and I love Chinook

So you cat pee folks - is this something you can tell by just sniffing the pelleted hops, or a flavor that develops in the final beer? I'd like to find out how I feel about those varieties before I use them
