Amarillo hops are excellent, citrusy hops. Centennial and Chinook hops are high alpha hops that have a citrusy character as well.

noting mellow about it, but if you use Fuggle at EXTREME Rate of application (2 oz total in 3 gallon batch) ...You will (I did) think You've made Grapefruit Juice.

A combination of Perle, Amarillo and Cascades also does a great grapefruit imitation.

CULTIVAR: Cascade
PEDIGREE: [Fuggle x (Serebrianka-Fuggle Seedling)]

And Amarillo is a Cascade sport.

I've brewed several beers with Amarillo, and I can definately say that it is a citrusy hop. It doesn't have as much grapefruit on its own as some other hops, but still quite citrusy.

Others have reported that Summit is citrusy. I have a pound in my freezer I haven't gotten around to using yet, but I'll find out soon as I'm brewing a Chinook + Summit IPA this weekend.

+1 on Summit. It has a very tangerine/orangey flavor and aroma. Beirmuncher's Summit pale ale recipe is amazing. I just did an IPA with all summit and it smells great.

Nelson Sauvin is a very grapefruity hop (I'm a big fan). It is almost harvest time in New Zealand, so you may see some around soon.
