Sounds interesting to say the least. What exactly are you going for here. The base looks like something of a pale ale? Is that what you're going for? I've never brewed with spruce, but I say go for it!!!

the spruce tips will take the place of hops. i took a handfull of tips and boiled them in a few cups of water and made a tea out of them to test the flavor. kinda minty mentholy but not overpowering. didn't know if i might need a small hop addition or not. i din't want it too sweet.
