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.

Melkart (269) - Porto Alegre, BRAZIL - JUN 3, 2013
Complex and strong. You can taste high alcohol, but it did not break the flavor. Almost no aftertaste and high biterness.

Sammy (8420) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
OK DIPA, Mondial 2013. Was tart and hops were there but not a bold taste, more like a strong ale. Boozy, orange taste. Orange colour and lace.

Dogbrick (7682) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Sample at the Hills Market beer tasting on 05/30/2013: This beer is a clear copper-amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Grapefruit, hops and malt in the nose. Medium to full body with flavors of piney hops, citrus and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

lesifflebiere (1212) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Ambrée plutôt mince, film de mousse tenace, odeurs de céréales blondes et de houblons fruités. Malts plus sucrés et caramélisés que prévus, on dénote quand même des pêches. Houblons présents en finale, alcool bien contrôlé. Une bonne ambrée qui profiterait d’un peu plus de caractère, surtout pour une impériale, mais qui est quand même réussie en bout de ligne.

Marheb (1970) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2013
Mondial de la bière 2013: Belle rondeur, peu de caractère des houblons même si on sent la résine coller au palais. Correct.

bbcd (214) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2013
clear amber, rocky off-white head with long retention and some lacing. resin, floral, caramelized sugar, molasses, bit of lemon. medium bitter, medium sweet, but the rapadura sugar peeks through sometimes giving it a real kick of sweetness. medium-full body, sticky.

Ed5388 (1977) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2013
600ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber color with a nice creamy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, pine and citrus hops, and some spice. Taste is citrus and tropical fruits, some pine, caramel malts, and slightly boozy.

aletiosso (45) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 26, 2013
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

tmongoose (1213) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 24, 2013
Shared bottle pours a golden orange with white head that dissipates quickly. The initial aroma was bright citrus. A grapefruit to pineapple scent. On the backend of the aroma I get some pine. The flavor is very citrus hop forward. I do get a alcohol burn on the end of this. Don’t understand the big difference in style rating vs overall but this is a pretty good dipa.

Pours light amber with large white head. Very hoppy aroma with lots of hoppy flavor with sweet finish. Very good beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
