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. Hazy golden amber color, huge fluffy cream colored head with good retention. Aroma of spiced caramel candy and pine resin. Taste is bitter pine resin and maple syrup. Interesting.

joeneugs (3335) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 14, 2013
24 oz. bottle. It pours a nice golden color with a thick and creamy white head. The aroma is very nice with lots of fresh tropical fruit, mostly pineapple and papaya with a touch of more dense piney hops. The flavor is mildly sweet and fruity with more pineapple and strong alcohol that leaves some harsh phenols in the finish. This tastes like it had an aggressive fermentation maybe on the warmer side. Not bad though. It’s nice that it was light on the caramel malt.

Aroma muito bom, frutado e com muitos tons florais. Boa para beber sozinha ou para acompanhar umas entradas leves. Final curto e ligeiramente amargo

Huhzubendah (2631) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle from Central Market in San Antonio, Texas. The beer is transparent and orange with an inch of white head and ample effervescence. The aroma brings dank hops, pine, citrus, alcohol, floral notes. Bold flavor of juicy hops and alcohol. Medium to full bodied for the style. Sufficient bitterness with lingering citrus and hops. Solid.

My first drink, around 9:10pm on a Saturday Night. the pour was sexy. Enough head so that the last half oz or so wouldnt fit in my glass. My first sip was to finish the bottle, when it hit my tongue it was a bit shocking. It had a really awesome flavor profile that changed dramatically from the first to the second sip. It has some heat, it being 9% abv probably has something to do with it. But the overall hoppiness was very much on target for an Imperial. Plenty of nose, but not crazy overpowering. I am pretty impressed, you could have told me it was a West Coast IPA and believed you. Good job Brazil!

Welley_Alves (220) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - JUL 16, 2013
Ótima Imperial/Double IPA da Colorado. Cor acobreada, com pouca formacao de espuma. Aroma cítrico, grapefruit e maracujá. Na boca, amargor intenso, lembrando maracujá e toranja, bem equilibrado pelo dulçor do malte carregado. Final seco e amargo, álcool bem inserido. Excelente breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tmoney99 (10841) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus earthy aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and lively carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. This is a solid beer.
