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.

Aroma cítrico muito bom, típico de uma IPA bem lupulada. Para apreciar aos poucos, com calma. Melhor IPA nacional até agora. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

600 ml bottle into tulip glass, unknown bottle coding. Pours moderately hazy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, lemongrass, peach, papaya, candi sugar, floral, light pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, lemongrass, peach, papaya, candi sugar, floral, pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of earthy floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, lemongrass, peach, papaya, candi sugar, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of hop and malt flavors; with a nice crisp hop/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent DIPA! All around great complexity of hop flavors with a moderate malt balance; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Cor laranja, espuma branca com boa persistência. No aroma, muito lúpulo, cítrico, grapefruit, casca de laranja, um pouco herbal, médio dulçor. No sabor, inicio doce, ficando amargo sem exagero, com final seco persistente. Muito boa cerveja. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour copper golden. Nose syrupy malt, grassy, stone fruit hop. Taste starts with sweet malt, almost candy, followed by immediate astringent bitterness and alcohol. ending with imaginary spiciness. Maybe this was a bad bottle, but the taste didnt live up to the smell, actually drain poured this one, which is a shame since DIPA is my favorite style.

Dense, zesty veg and lime. Firmly bittered, zingy Hubba Bubba and tang dry finish. Wee bit boozy but flavourless linger.

Bottle, Going Dutch Tasting

Grande doble ipa, extremamente forte. Com muitos sabores cítricos, principalmente de maracujá. Espuma boa e duradoura. Ótima experiência.
