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.

Pours light orange-amber with small but persistent off-white head. Aroma- grass and fruit hops. Spicy. Taste- floral beginning, sweet turnover at end of nutmeg, long bitter floral and grapefruit. Aftertaste- long bitter grapefruit and grass. Well-palated imperial.

Buddy just brought back from business trip so should be fresh. Some caramel on the nose. Deep Amber brown. Kind of cloudy. Some unclean elements to finish. Uhmm....also: hops? This wouldn’t even pass as an IPA in US or UK let alone an Imperial.

Watery ipa. I know they have problems growing hops in brazil. It is obvious to discerning tastes. This is not syrupy. Resinous. A double ipa would be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rgviegas (5) - BRAZIL - JUN 5, 2013 does not count
Boa iImperial IPA com uma boa aparência e que peca um pouco na falta de um retrogosto final um pouco mais duradouro e evidente.Sabor de casca de goiaba e grama presente e com álcool perceptível que por vezes quebra um pouco de sua harmonia . Mas uma boa opção. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Melkart (296) - Porto Alegre, BRAZIL - JUN 3, 2013
Complex and strong. You can taste high alcohol, but it did not break the flavor. Almost no aftertaste and high biterness.

Sammy (8636) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
OK DIPA, Mondial 2013. Was tart and hops were there but not a bold taste, more like a strong ale. Boozy, orange taste. Orange colour and lace.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Sample at the Hills Market beer tasting on 05/30/2013: This beer is a clear copper-amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Grapefruit, hops and malt in the nose. Medium to full body with flavors of piney hops, citrus and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

lesifflebiere (1271) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Ambrée plutôt mince, film de mousse tenace, odeurs de céréales blondes et de houblons fruités. Malts plus sucrés et caramélisés que prévus, on dénote quand même des pêches. Houblons présents en finale, alcool bien contrôlé. Une bonne ambrée qui profiterait d’un peu plus de caractère, surtout pour une impériale, mais qui est quand même réussie en bout de ligne.
