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.

Hazy gold - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is dry and crisp from sharp minerally carbonation. Thin malts, but sweetish. Sweet spices! Floral spice and piney hops. Moderate bitterness. Dry finish. Very floral spicy, is this because of the rapadura sugar? Interesting!
