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.

Rolfarild (190) - NORWAY - NOV 6, 2015
Orange with a big head, sparse lacing. Aroma of hayloft, herbs and alcohol. Taste peaces, herb, caramell, citrus. Long fruity aftetaste. Low bitterness for an ipa.

smcolw (617) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Large three-finger head that settles into a tight foam dome. Some streaky ring lace after every sip. The liquid is orange-amber with a mild chill haze. Darker pale ale malt aroma. There’s some alcohol to the nose as well. Low floral hop nose. This is a surprisingly smooth IPA. This leans to the malt for the style. There’s plenty alcohol warmth. The hop is spicy but not biting--this beer could stand to have a little bit more hop in it. Full bodied with a lower carbonation level. I am surprised this is from Brazil as this is a very good DIPA.

borre_m (1303) - NORWAY - OCT 30, 2015
Pours clear almost copper. Aroma is malty, not the hop I was expecting. Taste is malty sweet, has some bitterness, but not as much as I was expecting.

Braudog (6312) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle. A Mexican IIPA. Ariba! This is a meaty beast, an opaque, muddy orange with robust foam topping. It’s earthen and full of flavor, with a plentiful mouthful of woodsy hop bitterness. (#6049, 10/15/2015)

ruigo (2229) - PORTUGAL - SEP 29, 2015
50cl bottle. Clear dark copper colour with a frothy white head. Caramel, peaches, citrus, light pine and yeast in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is medium bitter with some peach and malt notes. Dry and bitter finish. Overall, a very good beer.

Lagerboy (1911) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2015
310 ml undated bottle. Opaque dirty brown-ish orange, lotsa chunks, mostly lasting off-white foam. Pungent alcohol aroma, herbal citrus hop. Taste is bitter herbal citrus hop, quite boozy, leaner caramel malts. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied, aggressively hopped. Just drinkable. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Marcius (418) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Amber color, hazy liquid and nice head. Strong hoppy aroma (Passion fruit and pineapple). Taste is heavy bitter with some caramel notes (brazilian Rapadura). Palate has a long dry finish. Great Imperial IPA!!!

TattooJack (494) - Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Poured from the 20oz. sorta bomber, looks brown with some red and amber. Smells like a Belgian which is not what I look for ideally in my Imperial IPA, but being 9.5% makes up for the little mistakes. There are hops, get some metallic taste in the back round (hopefully from the water purification process, if not I’ll be back to revise this rating tomorrow speaking about it) I’m pretty sure that if I spent any amount of time in Brazil I’d be drinking quite a bit of this beer. Definitely worth taking a flyer on.

stantheman (894) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2015
Small bottle from Liquor Barn in North Burnaby.

A medium reddish amber beer with moderate pale yellow head, good lacing noted, and a bitter citrus nose. Tasting confirms the bitter citrus hop note, but also balanced with a strong and delicious malt component. Finish is long and slightly bitter. Bravo! 3.9.

bhensonb (13996) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle from Bottles N Bins in Monterey, CA. Pours copery gold with a slight transient whitish head. Aroma of cooked stone fruit and caramel. Med++ body. Flavor is lighter stone fruit, caramel, and repeat caramel. Trace of heat. That may not sound super, but it really is. It has a bunch of hard hop notes. It has a lot of malt. It has heat. It really all works together incredibly well. No skimping on ingredients here. Excellent. Get it if you can.
