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.

Lukaduke (2937) - 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.

Bottle shared with a friend from a beer advent calendar. Pours an amber color with lots of sediment floating around. Smells like orange. Very strong smell. Strong citrus taste with an alcohol kick in the end. It’ll get ya!

Maverick34 (2912) - New York, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Pours dark amber from Alexandria whole foods bottle. A bit of sweetness and malts aroma. Pine resin but a bit of a sweet finish, it’s Brazilian after all.

mcberko (13254) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle, pours a cloudy dark orange amber with a small beige head. Nose is heavily malted, with loads of caramel malt along with resinous hops and a little pine. Flavour is thankfully not over-malted, with lots of woody resinous hops upfront, the slightest herbal quality, and a solid caramel malt backbone. Surprisingly cohesive and well-balanced -- wasn’t expecting much from a Brazilian IIPA, but this is very nice. Well-done.

pintbypint (3326) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
310ml brown bottle, Craft Beer Advent Calendar 2014, not sure which day this is from... Orange pour with haze and off putting floaties. Well formed off white cap of foam, nice creaminess and lacing. Nose has marmalade notes - orangey and grape fruity but sweetish, caramel malt as well. Taste has caramel malt with citrus hops. Bitterness is pretty mild. Aftertaste has caramel and mild citrus. Medium body, smooth for an above 9% brew, but fairly plain for the style.

Bottle to IPA glass Grapefruit, pine resin, spruce and a light smattering of tropical fruit. Colour is amber and it has a frothy 3-4 cm bright white head with decent retention due to the thousands of small bubbles flowing up from the bottom of the glass. There are also a large amount of yeasty particulates floating around on the bubble train. Taste is tropical fruit, bubble gum, peppermint, and pine.
