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.

Surprisingly good brew! Never saw it coming. A Brazilian Imperial IPA with real sugar cane. Pine coney aroma. Dense, foamy head. Earthy hops. Full bodied. No cloying aftertaste. Extremely refreshing. The booze seems balanced and evenly distributed. It is a little bitter than how I like my IPA’s as I tend to like them cleaner but this one is nonetheless pretty good. Colorado never puts out garbage. They just have lots of breweries and dispensaries at this point.

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!!

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

wombat23 (531) - 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 (393) - 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.
