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.

UXO (629) - CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
2014 Advent Calendar #19, 310ml, no bottle date or best before. Pours hazy pale amber with some particulate, three fingers of foamy medium beige head, good retention, moderate lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel malt, grassy hops with some very distant citrus and pine. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (5/10) Medium to full body, moderate to low carbonation, slightly sticky finish. (3/5) Malt forward, with grassy hops somewhat to the background, so it’s already not my favourite type of DIPA. Add to that a somewhat off-putting aftertaste that I can’t identify, and it’s less than a winner in my book. Credit where credit is due, though: the ABV is pretty well-behaved. I’m guessing this is somewhat past its best before and would have been better had it been fresher. (That head is a little exaggerated, but the way - at first it was looking like no head would develop, so I got a bit overaggressive in the pour. Could have been poured with a decent fat finger of head, had I known what to expect.) Not bad, and probably worth a try, but not worth trying again. (12/20)

310 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with white floating sediment and moderate head. Aromas of brown sugar and malt extract. Flavors of bitter resiny hops, grass and toasted malts. A bit skunky. Meh. 20

reebtogi (4555) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
330ml bottle pours a hazy pale amber color with a finger of white head that settles to reveal some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and citrus with some caramel notes. Taste is a pine and grapefruit hop bitterness with a grainy caramel malty sweetness. There is a bit of an off putting aftertaste that is a bit annoying as this is an otherwise well crafted brew. Worth trying only one time.

Bottle. Golden hazy colour with a layer of white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is pine, citrus and malty caramel. Taste is bitter up front, pine, booze, and sweet malts. Finish is bitter, with some malty sweetness, medium bodied, with a fair amount carbonation. Not horrible but not much flavour for a DIPA.
