i won't have fundings to do this beer next. but i do have more questions.

i found a few bottles at my local store and i really get a huge grapefruit taste out of this beer.

are there hops or yeast that fit a profile like that?

It could be a house strain like Bells Brewery uses, but I am thinking more hops. That's why I went with Cascade, but that's more of a non distinct orange that a grapefruit. I am now leaning towards Simcoe bittering, maybe flavor addition too. Still Amarillo flavor and huge aroma though.

This is the Simcoe hop description from Rebel Brewer's website

Description: Very unique pine-like aroma with grapefruit and pineapple notes.
Low Co-humulone level (17%) makes for a very clean bittering.
Known as a bittering hop with good aroma characteristics.

Well that sounds spot on.

This information was on the Founder's Blog

"A description. The beer you’ve been waiting for. Keeping your taste satisfied while keeping your senses sharp. An all-day IPA naturally brewed with a complex array of malts, grains, and hops. Perfectly balanced for aggressive aromatics, moderate bitterness and a remarkably clean finish. It’s the perfect companion for tall tales around the bonfire, working around the yard, or introducing great craft beer to your Uncle Ernie and Aunt Claudia.

The stats. 4.7% ABV, 42 IBUs, 6 SRM

Tasting notes. Fresh and hoppy, tropical fruits, oats and wheat.

Ingredients. Three varieties of malts, Simcoe and Amarillo hops (among others).

The accolades. Won a silver medal at the 2010 GABF"

Hah! We are almost there. Now that we have the Simcoe right. Time to focus on malts a bit more...

do you think this means 3 types of malt such as 2-row base, crystal, and something like rye? The other option to me is Barley (both base 2-row and crystal), Rye, and Wheat malt all together. if its just barley, rye and wheat with no crystal, then a hotter mash is needed to achieve more residual sugars, but that is doable...

As Founder's is not available in CO, I have not had the chance to taste the beer.

Perhaps the description gives some more clues:

Three varieties of malts...oats and wheat

It may be that the recipe is simply barley, oats and wheat. All are offered as malted. It might be worth a try.

I was doing some research on the Harpoon Leviathan Imperial IPA and I am starting to think that the Dryhopping on this beer may be a bit more complex. Leviathan uses Simcoe, Amarillo, and Centennial as well as Chinook. Not sure how they dryhop yet, but I think this one may be a slightly milder version of the Leviathan. Just a thought in case anyone knows anything about the Leviathan beer that I don't.
