I had the luxury of going to Bend Oregon to taste the Deschuttes Brewery's Inversion IPA before its formal release. I'm not a hop head, infact I used to hate hoppy beer. That was until I tried the Inversion IPA. If anyone has the luxury of tasting this beer, then tell me how they got that orange/grapefruit flavor from the hops. I have never ran into a hop that had such wonderful citrus flavor. I don't even want to create a clone of this beer, becuase I could only do it wrong

But I do want to explore the world of citrus hops. Its like the chronic of the hop world

Cascade hops will give you the grapefruity-citrus taste. There are others as well. Cascades are very much in vogue in the Pacific Northwest.

Sounds like cascade to me but maybe that is to obvious.

Amarillo tends to be pretty fruity.
