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.

I finally got my hands over this! And what an adventure it was!!! But mec, I’m glad now even if the price was Brazilian-over-the-top (14$ for a 310ml!!!). Sure, again, let’s compare Brazilian with Brazilian otherwise your 660ml Ballast Point at 7$ would immediately kill this samba-mofo. Well, anyway, anyway. Juicy hops reminding me of maracuja, citrus, pinneaples and laranja are present with a nice malt backbone opening and a nice amount of bitterness. Parabens, parabens pis toute.

310ml brown bottle, Craft Beer Advent Calendar 2014, not sure which day this is from... Orange pour with haze and off putting floaties. Well formed off white cap of foam, nice creaminess and lacing. Nose has marmalade notes - orangey and grape fruity but sweetish, caramel malt as well. Taste has caramel malt with citrus hops. Bitterness is pretty mild. Aftertaste has caramel and mild citrus. Medium body, smooth for an above 9% brew, but fairly plain for the style.

Bottle to IPA glass Grapefruit, pine resin, spruce and a light smattering of tropical fruit. Colour is amber and it has a frothy 3-4 cm bright white head with decent retention due to the thousands of small bubbles flowing up from the bottom of the glass. There are also a large amount of yeasty particulates floating around on the bubble train. Taste is tropical fruit, bubble gum, peppermint, and pine.

Burnt sugar melty maltyness .interestingly enough it actually tastes like it smells..mouthfeel is whats to be expected for a boozy high abv, yet still a nice carbonation on the tongue..would drink again..

shorlin (692) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Poured pretty carefully to avoid too much gunk. Ended up with little head, peachy amber colour. It looks thick while pouring. Aroma is mostly malty, caramel, with some leftover hop, maybe pine. Taste is what happens to old DIPAs - some residual bitterness but mostly malt and alcohol. Some citrus taste sort of. Feel is ok, medium full but loads of alcohol burn. Good for a try but not something I’d need twice.

Pours a pretty clear copper with a very thin spotty white head. Aroma is citrus, caramel, lots of sweetness, alcohol and pine. Flavour is sweet, alcohol, pine, citrus, caramel. A little too sweet for a iipa.

Reimer96 (1342) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Pours a partially hazy orangish copper with with a small white head and a bunch of floating particles. Aroma of caramel, booze, citrus and grapefruit. Taste is caramel, citrus, grapefruit, pine and a big residual sweetness on the finish along with a big alcohol burn... Not as smooth as a double ipa can be and too sweet on the finish.

Hazy orange/amber pour with sediment. Moderate foam head with spotty lacing. Flavour of bitter hops and malts. Less citrusy than I’d like but not too bad.

Bottle into snifter. Pours a hazy orange copper colour. Aroma is sweet jammy fruits and a little alcohol. Taste is fruity without much alcohol. Pretty good imperial IPA. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

2014 Advent Calendar #19, 310ml, no bottle date or best before. Pours hazy pale amber with some particulate, three fingers of foamy medium beige head, good retention, moderate lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel malt, grassy hops with some very distant citrus and pine. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (5/10) Medium to full body, moderate to low carbonation, slightly sticky finish. (3/5) Malt forward, with grassy hops somewhat to the background, so it’s already not my favourite type of DIPA. Add to that a somewhat off-putting aftertaste that I can’t identify, and it’s less than a winner in my book. Credit where credit is due, though: the ABV is pretty well-behaved. I’m guessing this is somewhat past its best before and would have been better had it been fresher. (That head is a little exaggerated, but the way - at first it was looking like no head would develop, so I got a bit overaggressive in the pour. Could have been poured with a decent fat finger of head, had I known what to expect.) Not bad, and probably worth a try, but not worth trying again. (12/20)
