Default Pine Flavored Hops

OK, what hop in your opinion has the most PINE like aroma/flavor for dry hopping? One of my beer drinking buds wants me to make an IPA with a huge pine nose and flavor/aroma. I want to sock it to him!

I'm used to using Simcoe, Citra, Palisade, Amarillo, CTZ, Horizon and the like mainly for dry hopping purposes

Have you considered using actual pine as well, or are you keen to get the flavor from just hops?

Are you? Pine resin might not be a bad addition if it was well-balanced. Maybe some green pine needles. It wouldn't be the strangest thing people have added to their beer. (I'm looking at you, pumpkin.)

I wouldn't put pine resin in beer. Pine needles however is a different story. Fresh spruce tips would be a nice addition to the right beer. I can't recall the name but there's a brewery in Alaska that makes a spruce beer.

You could also use some juniper berries.
