    Terrapin Wake-n-Bake has grapefruit all over it, killer Imperial IPA!

    Yeah I am thinking this is just sarcasm or a joke we're missing out on :)

    I try to like Green Flash but I just can't, I've tried in the bottle, on tap and it's still a mediocre IPA. I'll 2nd on adding Abrasive, smells like fresh grapefruit stuffed into a can, and the taste follows. This was my first try with Abrasive and it's tremendous, as enjoyable as sucking on a HT.

    I just had the new release of Lagunitas Sucks the other day, and there was plenty of grapefruit in that, as well...
  8. If you haven't yet, you've got to try Jack's Abby Kiwi Rising. Also Hoponius Union has a bit of grapefruit taste, if you find yourself gravitating the the cool crispness known as lager.

    The Bollocks from Brash Brewing Company was massive grapefruit in this DIPA
  10. At least one person's already posted, but Maine Beer Co. MO is LOADED with grapefruit, IMO, and also IMO their best beer, criminally underappreciated because it's next to Lunch in the lineup.

    Criminally under appreciated because its like 8$ for 500ml of pale ale
  12. An under-appreciated beer that I got that grapefruit-oomph from was Coronado Idiot IPA.
  13. Criminally underappreciated compared to their other beers. I won't defend their pricing, but the fact that people go nuts paying $8 a bottle for Lunch and won't shell out $7 for MO is ridiculous.

  14. I have to pay $8 for my MO here and I do it without remorse; it is definitely their best.
