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.

Spab (2388) - 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.

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.

Bottle: Poured golden copper with creamy thick off white head. Aroma is grassy hops. Taste is earthy hops, dirt, veggie, roots, malt.

Really interesting offering from this Brazilian brewery. Not what I expected and not typical to style but worth another try.

TheJestersBeer (2060) - SWEDEN - APR 12, 2014
310ml bottle. Pours a medium amber, with an off-white head. Hoppy, fruity, alightly oxidized aroma, spruce, caramel, orange peel, cheese rinds. Semi-sweet, full bodied, mid to high bitterness, creamy CO2. Hoppy, resiny taste, citrus, grapefruit, caramel, hints of oxidation and cheese. Harsh finish. (2014-04-12)

gururyan (606) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - APR 10, 2014
Pours a crystal clear ruby orange with an everlasting head. Not much going on here. Mild hops, alcohol barely hidden, pretty disappointed overall given the ratings. Far from a drain pour, but not a repeat purchase for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BubbaIPA (1) - Midwest City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 29, 2014 does not count
Solid if not a very mild DIPA mellow on the nose, much milder than expected hoppiness on the tongue and a really nice palate. Compared to other Brazilian beers this is world class.
