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.

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 (2224) - 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 (2727) - 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 (544) - 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.
