Review: SpikedSeltzer Indian River Grapefruit

by Jeff Ellingson

SpikedSeltzer Indian River Grapefruit is one of four hard seltzer flavors created in 2012 by Nick Shields in his Westport CT garage.  Partnering with Dave Holmes the two launched SpikedSeltzer in 2013 creating the Hard Seltzer product category.  Indian River Grapefruit is named for the Indian River Citrus District, a narrow strip of land on the East Coast of Florida stretching about 200 miles from Daytona Beach to West Palm Beach.  75% of Florida’s grapefruit crop is grown here.  SpikedSeltzer Indian River Grapefruit is made from purified water and natural ingredients.  Natural flavors are then infused.It pours to a club soda color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly.  The aroma is grapefruit with a seltzer backing.  The sweet juicy grapefruit entry builds to a foamy tart whole grapefruit peak.  It fades with grapefruit skin and lime flavor, and finishes dry with bittersweet lime, seltzer, and alcohol taste.
