I think zesting the grapefruit is on the right track.

Did you ever brew it? I love a beer I had by tree House brewing that they used grapefruit juice at flameout.

I brewed one today and put in two pint glasses worth of simply grapefruit in at flameout and curious how it will turn out. I have lots of cascade, centennial, and 7 cs in it... C hops to the face...

I did brew it. I didn't hop it enough and went to easy on the malt bill so it came out lacking character and a little more grapefruit soda than I envisioned. I might give it another shot in the spring though and see if I can bring all the flavors together. The bitterness from grapefruit peel wasn't unwelcome but more hops would probably give it the fruit flavor I was looking for and some additional caramel malts would probably bring it all tpgether
