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.

TwinBeer (58) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Pour’s crystal clear see through golden orange with the aroma of sweet piney bubble gum and cotton candy.Taste is a nice sweet with a great blend of bitter and citrus that leaves the palate wishing for more. Overall this is a great double ipa, that has a wonderful balance between sweetness and hops that hides the 9.5% abv very well.

nazbion (13) - Tübingen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2015
Pours golden yellow with persistent white head. Weak herbal-hoppy aroma, I expected much more for an Imperial IPA. Bitter taste and afterstate, with some caramel malt showing up. Good drinkability despite the 9,5%.

Cybercat (3572) - Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Pours clear, coppery amber with a thick and fluffy buff head. Aroma has hoppy and fruity notes, more sweet than evergreen. Hoppy flavor has fruity and subtle floral notes, plus a little sweet malt. Texture has average body and good fizz. Get your samba goin’!

Emeister84 (1216) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Aromas of orange peel, dry caramel, freshly baked bread. Almost clear bronze with golden-yellow highlights, head is quickly vanishing. Mostly dry, orangey fruitiness, tangerine maybe, toasty. Medium-full bodied.

Lukaduke (2398) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is a bit oxidized with hints of citrus, cardboard, wet grass and some caramel malts. Palate follows the nose but with more focus. Nice grapefruit, citrus peel, pine and round sweet malts easy out the finish with some clean bitterness lingering.

Bottle shared with a friend from a beer advent calendar. Pours an amber color with lots of sediment floating around. Smells like orange. Very strong smell. Strong citrus taste with an alcohol kick in the end. It’ll get ya!
