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

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.

Bottle from Liquor Barn, Burnaby
Hazy amber color, a bit dull, with medium sized head. The aroma is a bit cereally; the cereals are more evident in the flavor, definitively a different profile than the IIPAs from North America, this one is more grainy, which doesn’t play too well: strong bitterness, a bit pithy in the final, with a bit of hop resins and not many more hop qualities.
Mediocre.

Amber, bright, thin head. Deep tangerine, orange nose, also hinting at malt chewiness. Sweet, light dried fruit character. Fig. Touch of hop bitterness. Sweet finish with a little bit of booziness.

Aromas are predominantly citrusy and floral, like passion fruit and apricot, also bringing a malty backbone on it. Taste is very bitter, sweet and just a bit harsh on alcohol, leaving a warm and bitter aftertaste. Dont know, first time I tried this, it was an excellent double IPA. Maybe I’ve tried better ones after this. Still nice to drink.

Uma excelente double IPA dry-hopping da Colorado. Seu nome Vixnu é homenagem ao deus responsável pela proteção do universo que juntamente com Shiva e Brahma, forma a trimúrti, a trindade sagrada do hinduísmo (lógico que a Brahma estava aí só pra atrapalhar neé kkkkkk).Quando há desequilíbrio, ele envia um de seus avatares para salvar o mundo. Ou seja, a Colorado Vixnu veio para salvar-nos de varias IPA’s desequilibradas que andamos bebendo por aí. Coloração âmbar. Uma espuma branca, cremosa e perene, de alta formação e média duração. Aroma herbal e gramíneo, remetendo inúmeros lúpulos diferentes, junto numa base de caramelo e frutas ácido de maracujá e abacaxi. Bem agradável. Sabor bem puxado do inicio ao fim do amargor dos lúpulos, porém um amargor leve e agradável, sem raspar na lingua. Nota-se um leve dulçor no meio do meio pro final do gole, remetendo a caramelo e mel. Notas acidas percebida nos outros goles de maracujá. Final amargo e seco. Bem encorpada!
