Which hop is it that you have used to get the most grapefruit taste. Maybe it's a combination. Maybe it's just one. The more eplies to this thread with opinions the closer we can all get to nailing down that elusive, yet highly atainable property alot of us love. The grapefruit flavor.

I'd say Amarillo is "peachy" as well, so honestly I'd go with Cascade or Centennial.

Dude, mix Amarillo and Simcoe. It is wonderful! Like tropical fruit!

I found that Saphir has left a strong grapefruit taste to a batch of Gluten Free sorghum beer. I used 3oz at flameout for aroma. Very in your face taste of grapefruit even with the aftertaste in the back of the tongue.

i wouldnt use centennial for grapefruit...i always get a really floral character from them (see stone IPA, bells two hearted, sierra harvest).

amarillo + cascade (more amarillo) works great.
