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.

Marcius (318) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Amber color, hazy liquid and nice head. Strong hoppy aroma (Passion fruit and pineapple). Taste is heavy bitter with some caramel notes (brazilian Rapadura). Palate has a long dry finish. Great Imperial IPA!!!

Poured from the 20oz. sorta bomber, looks brown with some red and amber. Smells like a Belgian which is not what I look for ideally in my Imperial IPA, but being 9.5% makes up for the little mistakes. There are hops, get some metallic taste in the back round (hopefully from the water purification process, if not I’ll be back to revise this rating tomorrow speaking about it) I’m pretty sure that if I spent any amount of time in Brazil I’d be drinking quite a bit of this beer. Definitely worth taking a flyer on.

Small bottle from Liquor Barn in North Burnaby.

A medium reddish amber beer with moderate pale yellow head, good lacing noted, and a bitter citrus nose. Tasting confirms the bitter citrus hop note, but also balanced with a strong and delicious malt component. Finish is long and slightly bitter. Bravo! 3.9.

bhensonb (12585) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle from Bottles N Bins in Monterey, CA. Pours copery gold with a slight transient whitish head. Aroma of cooked stone fruit and caramel. Med++ body. Flavor is lighter stone fruit, caramel, and repeat caramel. Trace of heat. That may not sound super, but it really is. It has a bunch of hard hop notes. It has a lot of malt. It has heat. It really all works together incredibly well. No skimping on ingredients here. Excellent. Get it if you can.

mauroruellas (484) - GETULINA, BRAZIL - JUN 23, 2015
Coloração âmbar,límpida,boa carbonatação,espuma inicial belíssima alta,cremosa mas com baixa manutenção;aroma talvez seja o seu ponto + forte,cítrico,com boa presença de lúpulos aromáticos, notas de maracujá e abacaxi e um leve caramelo ao fundo;Sabor encorpado,extremo,marcante,envolto numa boa base maltada o bom amargor dos lúpulos dominam o paladar de uma forma dominadora e persistente,notas terrosa e cítricas e álcool percebido mas bem inserido complementam o conjunto. IPA poderosa e bem feita.

Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, alcohol, citrus and grape. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter with a long warm, malty, caramel, citrus and grape finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2015
On tap at Hop Cat, Ann Arbor. A clear dark golden beer with a creamy, beige head. Curtains. It’s lightly sour on the nose, with pine cones, resins, some malts and a touch of booze. It’s full bodied, semi sweet and lightly warming on the palate, with hoppy flavors dominating. Bitterness, resins and pine cones. Since vinous notes. Lasting quite hoppy finish. Rather unusual but nice. 150615

meireteixeira (165) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 13, 2015
Cor alaranjada, brilhante. Espuma boa e de baixa resistência. Aroma lupulado, cítrico e maracujá. Paladar rico que remete a caramelo, rapadura, lúpulo, malte e um toque de álcool. Corpo médio. Retrogosto de amargor equilibrado.
