4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Fruity (mango, orange), malty (caramel) aroma features a saltwater scent. This beer does not have the hops dominance or profile one would expect in the aroma of an American version of a Double IPA, but it is pleasant. A touch umami in smell. Initially pours a clear, highly effervescent copper. The color actually ranges from gold at the bottom of the glass to deep bronze or amber at the top of the glass. The final of multiple pours has much suspended particulate and is somewhat darker in color. Moderate amount of beige head. Produces good lacing. Looks appetizing and appealing. Initially malty taste features flavors of molasses (I later learned that the beer contains Rapadura sugar, so this makes sense), minerals, and some citrus. Dry, lemony, briny hops become increasingly evident as I sip. There is a flavor that reminds me of lemons and rocks. Also peach, Worthers Original or creamy fruit lollipop, and cinnamon chewing gum. Licorice finish. Dry, mineral-y aftertaste. Numbing on the tongue. Medium body. Smooth in the palate. Lively and soft. Overall, Colorado Vixnu is a likable beer and a nice change of pace for a Double IPA. That Rapadura sugar really makes its presence felt and changes the character of the beer, so this does not taste like many other beers in the IPA family.

Bomber. Hoppy aroma with some caramel sweetness and a hint of citrus. Pours hazy amber colored with a huge, soapy white head and good lacing. Starts with some caramel sweetness as well as some bitterness and a hint of citrus. Finishes very dry with a good citrusy bitter, floral hop finish. Pretty good ipa.
