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.

Bottle. Clear dark gold with a huge cream colored head. Aroma is sweet and grassy. Taste is very malt forward. Lots of caramel and stingy alcohol. Light hop bitterness underneath. Thick sticky palate with light carb. Decent but unbalanced.

An excellent Imperial IPA with an apt passion fruit taste. This brewery continues to surprise me - every beer I have tasted is very good and this one is the the best of the bunch. Rated by BrewTom

Amarga como pedo de perro. Me gusta! Peligrosa para inadvertidos. Dinkability baja. No dá para tomar muy seguido. De cualquier manera, para repetir.

Kita (1038) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottled, 0.60l, shared with CanCrusher. Clear golden orange color with large frothy off-white head, fair lacing and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of tropical fruits, herbal hops and caramel. Taste starts with sweet and smooth caramel malt, following is refreshing fruity and hoppy, alcohol is well hidden, while finish is very pleasant strong bitter. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Damn’ good, worth of every R$ (cca. $11)...

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Aroma lembra rapadura. Espuma pequena e pouco densa. Âmbar e levemente translúcida. Sabor leve de rapadura e paladar com um amargor suave e levemente adocicada.

dEnk (3779) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is fruity herbal hops, some malty light caramel notes. Flavour is the same, but a more sugary caramely than expected. Decent though.

CanCrusher (613) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle 0,60L. Thanks to Kita for sharing. Clear golden-orange colour with big, frothy, off-white, fully lasting head. Nice, intensive aroma of all kind tropical fruits, pine, caramel, vanilla and I probably forget some other scents... Taste is moderate bitter, very hoppy. Alcohol is well hidden. Full bodied oily beer with soft carbonation. All the respect to those Brasilian brewers, I didn’t expect that good beer from Brasil...
