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.

islay (2221) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2014
22 oz. bottle. Fruity (mango, orange), malty (caramel) aroma features a saltwater scent. This beer does not have the hops dominance or profile one would expect in the aroma of an American version of a Double IPA, but it is pleasant. A touch umami in smell. Initially pours a clear, highly effervescent copper. The color actually ranges from gold at the bottom of the glass to deep bronze or amber at the top of the glass. The final of multiple pours has much suspended particulate and is somewhat darker in color. Moderate amount of beige head. Produces good lacing. Looks appetizing and appealing. Initially malty taste features flavors of molasses (I later learned that the beer contains Rapadura sugar, so this makes sense), minerals, and some citrus. Dry, lemony, briny hops become increasingly evident as I sip. There is a flavor that reminds me of lemons and rocks. Also peach, Worthers Original or creamy fruit lollipop, and cinnamon chewing gum. Licorice finish. Dry, mineral-y aftertaste. Numbing on the tongue. Medium body. Smooth in the palate. Lively and soft. Overall, Colorado Vixnu is a likable beer and a nice change of pace for a Double IPA. That Rapadura sugar really makes its presence felt and changes the character of the beer, so this does not taste like many other beers in the IPA family.

Bomber. Hoppy aroma with some caramel sweetness and a hint of citrus. Pours hazy amber colored with a huge, soapy white head and good lacing. Starts with some caramel sweetness as well as some bitterness and a hint of citrus. Finishes very dry with a good citrusy bitter, floral hop finish. Pretty good ipa.
