Ive only had grapefruit taste on beers that were put on tart fruit, like my strawberry blonde that went onto 8lbs of strawberries...

For the first month and a half it was super tart, and had a grapefruit taste because of it...now its mellowed out a lot and the other flavors are coming through.

My latest ipa tastes like pure unadulterated grapefruit heaven, but I did it on purpose, I like the taste.

I'd say a small grapefruit tree, LOL
