Default The Grapefruit and Pine Sap Flavor Poll

I just read on the interwebs that a bit over 25% of surveyed people Hate the flavor of grapefruit. That made me wonder about beer flavor (I'm always thinking about beer). What percentage of HBT folks hate grapefruit or pine sap flavor in beer? I'll go first: (DUH), I can't stand it. An otherwise perfectly good beer is ruined by such hop additions IMHO. Guess I'm in the lower 25%.

Grapefruit both in fruit & in hops has grown on me. Still not my favorite, but I can appreciate it.

Pine isn't a favorite flavor either. But it's not the pine that I object to so much. It's the cattiness that comes with it.

OK, in about 3 hours, about 8 peeps responded. Are the rest of you d^ckheads, or just mentally disabled? Can you figure out if you like grapefruit flavor or pine in your beer?

That... was uncalled for. I hope your other 3k+ posts are less hateful.
