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.

Sigmund (5309) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting, thanks to our beerpal Olav. ABV is 9.5%. Deep golden to amber colour, moderate white head. Surprisingly moderate aroma, some fruity and piney hops, stale marmalade and a little caramel and dust. Distinctly hoppy flavour throughout on a decent malty base, nice bitterness, well balanced.

umich03jm (2169) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Tap at Slows-Bar-B-Q. Pours a mostly clear gold with a small foamy head that fades to a ring and leaves good lacing. Aroma is like nail polish remover mixed with sugary tropical fruit. Tastes the sames as the aroma. Very harsh. I really can’t tell if this is infected or just a really poorly made DIPA.

Ron (2682) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle pour copper golden. Nose syrupy malt, grassy, some hops. Taste starts with sweet malt, followed by immediate astringent bitterness and alcohol. Ending with unknown spiciness.The taste didn’t live up to the smell, Did not enjoy this one, which is a shame since I usually like all DIPA’s. Serves me right for throwing a DIPA in my cart just cause it says Colorado on it and not reading the fine print.

ljthiessen (511) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy golden amber pour with a thin white head. Tropical fruits, more hops in the flavour than the aroma. Sweet, but hoppy and tasty. Didn’t have very high expectations, but this was surprisingly decent. Would definitely find this to try again.

Headbanger (3386) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2014
40oz bottle 10/19/14 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-40° in Shaker-Pours an orangish amber with a big loose white head. Aroma of hops, malt, citrus, and sourness. Taste of the same with some Rapadura. this medium bodied brew is a bit different but not bad.

eduardovl (942) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
600ml served in a pint glass. A: Pours a nice dark orange color. Slightly hazy. Forms big bubbled light yellow head. Great retention and tons of lingering soap-like lacings formed and left in the glass S: Caramel malts, flowery hops and the very particular and peculiar smell of rapadura which orchestrate all together giving also a bit sour sensation in the end. Roasted malts. A bit smoked. Hops are quite citrus, grassy and piny T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of toffee, caramel malts, roasted malts, coffee and rapadura. Notes of raisins, grapefruit, orange zest. From sweet, it becomes quite bitter. Hops have grassy, citrus and piny notes. Intense bitter end. Rapadura gives it some light notes of sourness M: Heavy, creamy and a little bit molasses body. Medium carbonation. Bittersweet caramel-grass aftertaste O: Excellent drinkability. Just another Colorado masterpiece [ BA Review @ 7/17/2013 ]

Ferris (4988) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle - Earthy weedy hops and caramel. Cloudy orange gold with a rich white head. Bit of spicy hops and rich caramel, boozy and some of the vegative hops. Finish is bitter and long. Overall a very average beer.

Benzai (8924) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle [from trade with beerhunter111] @ home. Clear dark orange to amber color, full sized off-white head that leaves fair lacing. Aroma is quite weird for a double IPA: malts, caramel, some cardboard, bready. Taste malts, again caramel, oxidation, leaves, bitter and old hops. I think it must be an old bottle or alternatively it’s just not a good beer.
