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.

gururyan (715) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - APR 10, 2014
Pours a crystal clear ruby orange with an everlasting head. Not much going on here. Mild hops, alcohol barely hidden, pretty disappointed overall given the ratings. Far from a drain pour, but not a repeat purchase for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zilb (151) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - AUG 19, 2016
Bue 5 mois avant DLC avec Emilien et Pap en Bretagne. Biere ambree sans mousse et sans carbonation. Arome de malt toaste et d’alcool, une pointe de whisky plus tard apres rechauffement. Final sur l’alcool sans amertume, tres douce. Biere tres ronde dans le style de la maredsous triple. J’ai bien aime !

Bottle enjoyed at home
Copper, quite clear, big creamy beige head. Smell of fruity hops, some zest, yeast esters, quite mild on the hops and a touch of smoke. Moderate sweet, fruit peel, zest, smoke, some sour notes, not at all very ipa i think. Moderate bitter, strange stuff

Best Cost Benefit, no doubt! By e- commerce emporiodacerveja.com. Great national style representative.(My favorite!) Bitterness attenuated by the addition of brown sugar, which magnifies all together, by the look and smell. The Ribeirão Preto staff sent very well in this label. Cheers!!

wombat23 (619) - Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Shared 20 oz. bottle. Amber with a lasting soapy white head. Good lacing. Aroma of citrus, malt, and faint pine. Caramel, malt, citrus, pine, and alcohol flavors. Malt has the upper hand in this one. Hops flavors are there, but more in the background. Medium-bodied. A somewhat bitter finish. Decent.

darbeer75 (440) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Aroma: classic IPA hoppy aroma; Appearance: dark amber with billowy head and good lacing; not as dark as typical IIPAs; Taste: definitely on the bitter side; a bit unbalanced; pretty smooth; not too bad; Palate: medium body with long, bitter finish; Overall: decent, but in a crowded field of good beers. Would probably not get again, but that’s just because there are other choices -- not necessarily a reflection on this one.
