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.

Draft at Rattle n Hum. Pours golden orange with a white head. Spicy and herbal hops, light fruity notes, and moderate bitterness. Nice enough.

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!)

Rotaldinho (77) - Paris, FRANCE - JUN 6, 2014
Golden hues with excellent clarity. One finger head that leaves moderate lacing. Floral and citrus with bready malt notes that are less pronounced. Hops... not much bitterness but great hop flavor. Light carbonation, full mouthfeel.

Spab (2362) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
1 pint, 4 oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a clear orange colour with big, dense white head. Aroma is earthy and sweet with caramel, fruit, some candy sugar and pine resin. Flavour is also on the sweeter side with definite sugar presence, caramel, some vague fruity character and a relatively subtle earthy/piney bitterness. Slick mouthfeel. Pretty good.

koleminer20 (586) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2014
From notes. 20 oz bottle shared at a tasting on 5 May. The pour is a golden orange with a good amount of sticky clingy white lace that has some great retention on top of a thin white head. There is also a lot of noticeable sediment with this one. The aroma is more malty than hoppy and citrusy. They are present, but the malts just dominate. The flavor is is quite similar. There is a good maltiness, albeit light, and the remainder of it just doesn’t do a whole lot for an IPA. The mouth feel is thin, and the carbonation is lacking and minimal. The aftertaste is surprisingly light, and isn’t very great here.

Surprisingly good brew! Never saw it coming. A Brazilian Imperial IPA with real sugar cane. Pine coney aroma. Dense, foamy head. Earthy hops. Full bodied. No cloying aftertaste. Extremely refreshing. The booze seems balanced and evenly distributed. It is a little bitter than how I like my IPA’s as I tend to like them cleaner but this one is nonetheless pretty good. Colorado never puts out garbage. They just have lots of breweries and dispensaries at this point.

SHIG (3575) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle: Poured golden copper with creamy thick off white head. Aroma is grassy hops. Taste is earthy hops, dirt, veggie, roots, malt.
