Maybe mashed too long? If you're refering to the taste of the white pith on citrus skin,that kind of bitternes might come fron tannins? It seems to me that sometimes,long times can do the same as high temps...

I think the best way to taste your tap water for off-flavors is to leave a glass sitting out for a few hours (or overnight) to completely de-oxygenate and warm it to room temperature. In a second glass, do the same, but use a good bottled water. I like Coca Cola's Dasani brand, as they use municipal tap water, simply filtered with reverse osmosis, and add minerals back to it. Taste them both, and note the differences.
