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.

Amber, bright, thin head. Deep tangerine, orange nose, also hinting at malt chewiness. Sweet, light dried fruit character. Fig. Touch of hop bitterness. Sweet finish with a little bit of booziness.

Aromas are predominantly citrusy and floral, like passion fruit and apricot, also bringing a malty backbone on it. Taste is very bitter, sweet and just a bit harsh on alcohol, leaving a warm and bitter aftertaste. Dont know, first time I tried this, it was an excellent double IPA. Maybe I’ve tried better ones after this. Still nice to drink.

Uma excelente double IPA dry-hopping da Colorado. Seu nome Vixnu é homenagem ao deus responsável pela proteção do universo que juntamente com Shiva e Brahma, forma a trimúrti, a trindade sagrada do hinduísmo (lógico que a Brahma estava aí só pra atrapalhar neé kkkkkk).Quando há desequilíbrio, ele envia um de seus avatares para salvar o mundo. Ou seja, a Colorado Vixnu veio para salvar-nos de varias IPA’s desequilibradas que andamos bebendo por aí. Coloração âmbar. Uma espuma branca, cremosa e perene, de alta formação e média duração. Aroma herbal e gramíneo, remetendo inúmeros lúpulos diferentes, junto numa base de caramelo e frutas ácido de maracujá e abacaxi. Bem agradável. Sabor bem puxado do inicio ao fim do amargor dos lúpulos, porém um amargor leve e agradável, sem raspar na lingua. Nota-se um leve dulçor no meio do meio pro final do gole, remetendo a caramelo e mel. Notas acidas percebida nos outros goles de maracujá. Final amargo e seco. Bem encorpada!

nazbion (276) - Tübingen, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2015
Pours golden yellow with persistent white head. Weak herbal-hoppy aroma, I expected much more for an Imperial IPA. Bitter taste and afterstate, with some caramel malt showing up. Good drinkability despite the 9,5%.

Cybercat (4884) - Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Pours clear, coppery amber with a thick and fluffy buff head. Aroma has hoppy and fruity notes, more sweet than evergreen. Hoppy flavor has fruity and subtle floral notes, plus a little sweet malt. Texture has average body and good fizz. Get your samba goin’!

Emeister84 (1984) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Aromas of orange peel, dry caramel, freshly baked bread. Almost clear bronze with golden-yellow highlights, head is quickly vanishing. Mostly dry, orangey fruitiness, tangerine maybe, toasty. Medium-full bodied.

Lukaduke (2923) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is a bit oxidized with hints of citrus, cardboard, wet grass and some caramel malts. Palate follows the nose but with more focus. Nice grapefruit, citrus peel, pine and round sweet malts easy out the finish with some clean bitterness lingering.
