COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vixnu é uma divindade hindu responsável pela manutenção do Universo, formando uma tríade juntamente com os deuses Shiva e Brahma. Esse foi o nome escolhido pela Cervejaria Colorado, de Ribeirão Preto, para a então Double Indica, cerveja hiperlupulada que já apareceu esse ano em alguns bares de cervejas especiais, como o Bar Brejas. Com potência alcoólica de 9,5% ABV, a breja é do estilo imperial india pale ale, e promete ser o nirvana dos lupulomaníacos. No novo rótulo, por sinal, Vixnu aparece em meio a um jardim de lúpulos. O rótulo acima, que ainda está em fase de revisão, foi desenhado pelo designer cervejeiro americano Randy Mosher, que já havia assinado os demais rótulos da cervejaria paulista. A referência à Índia para retratar o estilo já havia sido usada na forma de gravura do templo hindu Taj Mahal na Colorado Índica.

Hazy gold - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is dry and crisp from sharp minerally carbonation. Thin malts, but sweetish. Sweet spices! Floral spice and piney hops. Moderate bitterness. Dry finish. Very floral spicy, is this because of the rapadura sugar? Interesting!

ogivlado (5584) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottled 600ml. -at some small bar in random Sao Paulo mall. Orange/golden coloured, medium sized off-white head, fresh hoppy nose with whiff of alcohol. Heavy sweet malty, citrusy hoppy and caramel with noticable alcohol in the finish. Nice one.

There is a little funk on the nose which interrupts the orange malt. Color is crisp clear orange with an off white head which held for a while. Bitterness is very mild, swamped by the chewy malt and a strange savory character which floats around in the background. The body is medium to full, and somewhat chunky. Texture is thick and creamy. Plenty of bubbles but the finish is short and boring. Overall this is not a beer which did much for my palate and I probably won’t drink the second half of this 22oz bottle.

Beerathon (1103) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Murky dirty orange with thick creamy head and some lacing. Boozy, spice notes, pine, metallic, faint citrus, sweet maltiness. A bit musty/dank in the nose. My first beer from Brazil, decent.

DYCSoccer17 (3301) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 4, 2014
500ml bottle from Estacao do Malts in Natal, Brazil. The aroma is peppery, spicy with light caramel malt sweetness. I have difficulty detecting any aromatic hops. Kind of lacking. Starts a little tinny with some metallic hints. Becomes lightly sweet in the middle. Finishes with some ethanol heat and a mildly bitter finish.

DuffMan (6531) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. We enjoyed a few of these while watching World Cup highlights while in Rio. Hazy medium orange, off white head. Sweet malts, light caramel, with soft marmalade hop character and moderate bitterness. Decent, but nothing to get too excited over.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 12, 2014
Very good looking dark amber mostly clean body and stable small head. Not as fresh as I expected perhaps, but this beer makes up in other areas. Very nice malt base, quite thick actually. Mind you, there are lots of hops too, mostly piney, but the voyage to France might have reduced the hop freshness. Great taste, a surprise to be honest, with barley wine like malt base and quite concentrated. This American style beer was bought by my Brazilian friend in a French supermarket... love it! (31cl bottle from Monoprix as gifted by Flavia, many thanks!)
