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.

Crystal clear copper pour. Thick white head with lots of lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and dank. Mild amount of malt sweetness. Flavor is pretty west coast style hop profile with a bit more sweetness. Not bad overall but lacks some refinement. ---Rated via iPhone

bhensonb (12297) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle from Bottles N Bins in Monterey, CA. Pours copery gold with a slight transient whitish head. Aroma of cooked stone fruit and caramel. Med++ body. Flavor is lighter stone fruit, caramel, and repeat caramel. Trace of heat. That may not sound super, but it really is. It has a bunch of hard hop notes. It has a lot of malt. It has heat. It really all works together incredibly well. No skimping on ingredients here. Excellent. Get it if you can.

Coloração âmbar,límpida,boa carbonatação,espuma inicial belíssima alta,cremosa mas com baixa manutenção;aroma talvez seja o seu ponto + forte,cítrico,com boa presença de lúpulos aromáticos, notas de maracujá e abacaxi e um leve caramelo ao fundo;Sabor encorpado,extremo,marcante,envolto numa boa base maltada o bom amargor dos lúpulos dominam o paladar de uma forma dominadora e persistente,notas terrosa e cítricas e álcool percebido mas bem inserido complementam o conjunto. IPA poderosa e bem feita.

yngwie (15188) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2015
On tap at Hop Cat, Ann Arbor. A clear dark golden beer with a creamy, beige head. Curtains. It’s lightly sour on the nose, with pine cones, resins, some malts and a touch of booze. It’s full bodied, semi sweet and lightly warming on the palate, with hoppy flavors dominating. Bitterness, resins and pine cones. Since vinous notes. Lasting quite hoppy finish. Rather unusual but nice. 150615

meireteixeira (142) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 13, 2015
Cor alaranjada, brilhante. Espuma boa e de baixa resistência. Aroma lupulado, cítrico e maracujá. Paladar rico que remete a caramelo, rapadura, lúpulo, malte e um toque de álcool. Corpo médio. Retrogosto de amargor equilibrado.

AGCostaNeves (69) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - MAY 1, 2015
Color amber bright and slightly turbid body. With Cream Beige pastel, good training, bulky and low to medium length leaving an excellent effect of income on the walls of glass. The aroma is intense and has pleasant hops notes herbal raising citrus notes, a refreshing passion fruit, pineapple, a fine sense of pine and something that means offshore. The flavor shows up in a complex clear and strong hops Herbal that brings a pleasant bitterness. The very strong presence of Passion defines the Brazilian beer, but noticed beautiful light malts and slightly sweetened. There is clearly some other sweet note, caramel or maybe brown sugar that together with some spices brings notes somewhat spicy in flavor. The palate is dry, crisp, medium body with a smooth texture. Its Carbonation is lively and mineralized. The alcohol content of 9.5% ABV is very well inserted in the set not being perceived abruptly in flavor which shows a beautiful balance. However, make no mistake, because this dragon of beautiful flame is there giving power to each mouthful. The aftertaste is bittersweet bittersweet leaving present taste for a long time in the mouth. It has a good drinkability. A striking Imperial / Double IPA where many do not understand its most striking and beautiful content pulled hops that prevail.

bookman10 (724) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Not too bad. Pours a copper-gold, with middling head. Aroma is very bready, with some fruit notes and hops. Flavor is on the sweet side for a DIPA, with lots of biscuitiness, along with some citrus and hops. A bit surprised that a beer company in Brazil could turn out something this good--it’s right up there with some of the better American craft brewers’ versions.
