Default Rainy/Forest Yeasts/Hops

I'm trying to brew an amber ale that has a woodsy/foresty/rainy taste. I've had some wine that conveyed that, but never a beer. There's a certain smell in the air around here after a good couple days of rain. It's not something you could get with oak, but it reminds me of the forest. Pine/ditrus and... I don't know what to call it.

Any ideas for yeasts (or maybe hops) that could convey this aroma?

I'd say Chinook and Northern Brewer are piney. Oh and I found this link:
