Definitely more than one hop that leads to that flavor. I know the local brewery here in Atlanta, Sweetwater IPA is very grapefruity.

I brewed a Cream Ale kit last year that was very grapefruity. The only hops that were in it were Cluster.

kdsarch, you wouldn't happen to be referring to Diamond Knot's IPA would you? That is a big glass of grapefruity awesomeness.

I found out that it was by Captain Lawrence Brewing. Their Captains reserve, which i actually an Imperial IPA. Their website: Captain Lawrence Brewing Company

When I started the post, I didnt know which brewery made the beer. Now I see that they list the hops as Columbus, Cascade, and Chinook. They list the ibu's as 80, and the plato at 20.

I have tweaked my recipe as follows to account for what I have on hand. I have a lot of Maris Otter that I would like to use up. Also, I am trying to keep the alcohol at 7%, and have a reddish color, so that is why I am not trying to get 20 plato and 80 ibu's.

I am planning on brewing this up this weekend. Let me know if anyone has ideas to change recipe ingredients.

Default Grapefruit

I accidentally made a very dry grapefruit beer. The grapefruit flavor is so strong that is all that I taste.
The hops I used are as as follows:
Bittering, Centennial
Flavoring/Aroma, Cascade

Nice thread necromancy.

Cascade is a "grapefruit monster" for sure!
