Simcoe has a very piney taste and aroma. Its bittering properties are not as strong as its flavor and aroma properties. It is easy to overuse Simcoe. I would pick a good bittering hop such as Columbus or Chinook and use 1/2 oz. simcoe at the last 15 minutes and the other 1/2 ounce at flame out. For specialty grain I would use 1/2 lb of 60L crystal and make a nice pale ale.

I just threw an oz of simcoe on top of my IPA in the secondary, I can let you know how it turns out... in ~3 weeks.
