look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

310ml (?) bottle, day 20 of the 2014 Craft Beer Advent calendar. Lots of chunky floaties apparent, with no obvious best before date stated. Hookay, here we go.

This beer pours (even carefully) a hazy, sediment-strewn (no kidding, Doris), medium bronzed amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, thinly foamy, and kind of soapy ecru head, which leaves some thick just-exploded fireworks lace around the glass as it quickly sinks away.

It smells of peppy caramel malt, warm sticky toffee, metallic alcohol, musty pinecone, candy bar nougat, acrid orange and lemon peel, and further leafy, floral, and well perfumed hops. The taste is bready, grainy caramel malt, more weird mirror-world toffee-esque sweetness, a much milder than anticipated citrus fruitiness, neutered leafy pine needles, and a much more smartly integrated booziness than that of the aroma.

The bubbles are generally laid-back and inert in terms of any sort of fizzy intransigence, the body a decently wrought medium-heavy weight for the style, and not particularly smooth, as the alcohol starts to come untethered. It finishes off-dry, the malt coming down a few pegs in terms of its initial headiness, while that perfumed heat continues to bristle about.

Not a bad Imperial IPA, but not a good one, either, the hoppiness just too restrained and flat-seeming, in order to seem like it's actually steering the ship. Hard to tell if this is an age issue, or what, but this certainly doesn't stand up to even the average examples coming from places outside of 'murca.

In honor of my wife and kids finally coming back from a 3 week venture to Brazil to visit family and me missing the hack out of them, I'm drinking this most likely actual craft beer from Brazil.

Pours a large fluffy 1.5 finger head that fades at a med pace at first, then slows to a crawl pretty much and just sits there with a nice thick head, and nice lacing, over a mostly clear amber orange colored beer.

Nose is pretty much what I used to expect from a DIPA, a big malty and big hop character balanced. Sweet candy malts, caramel, little toasty amber, juicy malt and even a bit fluffy with a hint of booze warmth in the aroma. Hops bring a nice candied orange peel, with a slightly spicy bitterness, faint pint, a lot of bittering hops mostly it seems, and a bit of fruitiness.

Taste starts with big malts, fairly sweet, with a toasty malt, lots of sweet malt characters with a bit of molasses, candy syrup all over the place, and some caramel, with a fruity syrup thing going on too. That all brings some booze, warming booze mostly, with a touch of esters. Hops are mostly bitter as expected, candied orange peel, some citrus and fruity hops, chewy hops as well, with a fairly bitter character overall. The more I go the more the booze warms and starts to tingle. Finish is sticky sweet, lingering for a while with more candy malts, candied orange peel hops and fair bitterness.

Mouth is fuller bod, decent carb, some warming booze that turns tingly the more it warms.

Overall not bad, esp for a beer from Brazil where almost everything I had from there when i was there last year was meh. This is actually pretty good for a strong DIPA, classic style, nothing wrong (at least detectable).

600 ml bottle into tulip glass, unknown bottle coding. Pours moderately hazy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, lemongrass, peach, papaya, candi sugar, floral, light pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, lemongrass, peach, papaya, candi sugar, floral, pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of earthy floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, lemongrass, peach, papaya, candi sugar, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of hop and malt flavors; with a nice crisp hop/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent DIPA! All around great complexity of hop flavors with a moderate malt balance; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Picked this up in Jenks, OK USA...

So far everything else from these Brazilian Bad asses has rocked, hoping for the same...

Pours an effervescent amber with 3+ fingers of cream colored head. Near perfect head & lacing & stays effervescent

S: Ugh, some vegtal stuff up front, onions & grassiness. Orchard fruit as this warms, recovers a little bit

T: Rich maltyness, honey crisp apples, white grapes, grassy & lemony grassy hops mixing with a bit of honey malt & booze up front. Some woody hops as this warms, more orchard fruit & much dryness & a little leafy hops. Finishes super-fruity, a bit dry, & a faint crispness, plus leafy hops

MF: Thickish mouthfeel for the style, slight carbonation, doesn't skew hoppy.

Drinks alright, but not hoppy enough for me. I got to think the journey & possibly age, affected this. This is the first on from this brewery that has fell short for me, so I would try again, if knew it was fresh; or is it the sugar they used??? This didn't really thrill me

Large three-finger head that settles into a tight foam dome. Some streaky ring lace after every sip. The liquid is orange-amber with a mild chill haze.

Darker pale ale malt aroma. There's some alcohol to the nose as well. Low floral hop nose.

This is a surprisingly smooth IPA. This leans to the malt for the style. There's plenty alcohol warmth. The hop is spicy but not biting--this beer could stand to have a little bit more hop in it. Full bodied with a lower carbonation level.

I am surprised this is from Brazil as this is a very good DIPA.

Bottle from Central Market in San Antonio, Texas.

The beer is transparent and orange with an inch of white head and ample effervescence. The aroma brings dank hops, pine, citrus, alcohol, floral notes. Bold flavor of juicy hops and alcohol. Medium to full bodied for the style. Sufficient bitterness with lingering citrus and hops. Solid.

Vixnu Imperial IPA, pronounced like Vishnu, the Hindu deity, but this is in Portugese, for we are having a beer from the Cervejaria (Portugese for Brewery, I presume) Colorado, of Ribeirao-Preto, Brazil. What, a craft brewery from Brazil? Why, I've never heard the like! In fact, I don't believe it! I won't even try it, it defies all logic! (That's how people are sometimes.)

So there's a Brazilian brewery called Colorado that has an Imperial IPA called Vixnu, and I'm drinking it straight off the tap.

Lightly clouded golden hue, vast, plump, creamy white head. Looks fantastic.

Pungent pineapple, mango, tropical fruit aromatics, lemon and lime zest, fairly moderate bitterness. Beautiful.

Taste: On the palate, not shy in the hop department. Light, biscuit-y malt body. Little bit of sweetness. Golden Promise? Soft, supple, smooth. Easy-going, despite the high ABV. And tons of American hop flavors and dazzling bitterness.
Delivers in full exactly what you want from this style. Loads of tropical delights and tons of bracing, bristling bitterness, what every hop head desires. Even coming from Brazil. It's delicious and delightful. Personally, I think this does as good of a job at ripping up the palate with bitterness and dropping fruity flavors as any of the great double IPAs. Even if it is from Brazil.

Good lord, go Brazil!

Ok, so the label said 'Colorado' and I live in Colorado, but found this beer in Kansas. You follow? K? mmk

Pours a meaty golden/amber with a nice barely off white head. It rocked up a bit, very nice lacing. Off to a great start.

Aroma is a blend caramel malt, pine and citrus hops, with a touch of spice and booze. Damn, off to another great start. While not something like PtY or PtE with the hop forward aroma and citrus out the yang, this one seems balanced.

And it's well balanced. Pine, citrus and malt just melt together. The booze is a little off putting (not golf), but not intrusive. The hops are present and strong but do not dominate. I would like to taste more hops...more dry/late hopping...but it's good nonetheless.

Great finish. Easy drinking for 9%. A bit boozy. Darn good, though

On-tap at Bar Brejas, the `new´ formula of their highly anticipated Double IPA. On to the beer:

We´re off to a great start. A beautiful amber colored hue shines in the body while the thick, white milk creamy head and lace typical of Brazilian chope contrast the beer perfectly. The show doesn´t stop with its looks though, the nose tries very hard to jump the high standard set by the appearance, offering copious and juicy amounts of passionfruit, pine, orange, and grapefruit.

While the IBU´s are set at `only´ 75, that doesn´t prevent this beer from being hoppy and delicious. It´s more of a balanced and hoppy DIPA, not over the top, delivering a sweet ride of malt, and then a shift arrives and in comes pineapple, resin, pasionfruit, and other assorted tropical fruits. The body is medium-large, yet not heavy going down, and despite the 9.5% ABV, only a little touch of it makes itself present.

Where the heck did this come from? While I did enjoy the portfolio´s Indica, it never struck me as a lupulin´s delight, making this Double version even more surprising. Easily the best Double IPA to come out of Brazil. Now if the country´s bureaucracy could approve its label quickly and thus get this beer bottled!

Clear orange amber colored beer with a tall white colored head. Yes this is IPA Orange.

Smells strongly hoppy as it should. Smells of sweet malt and pine resin. Light grass and orange with a faint cookie dough aroma. Pretty complex aroma for a DIPA.

Starts out sweet with a grapefruit rind after taste. Smoky flavor like a Rauchbier. Medium bitterness. Not super complex but a unique flavor, smoked IPA. The taste is actually very mild for the beer style. Alcohol is only detectable in how it warms your chest.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall this is damn tasty. This brewery has impressed me and this beer is no exception.

Pours a three finger off-white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Hazy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Grapefruit and sugar nose and flavor is similar with grapefruit hops and cane like sugar, slight bitter aftertaste. Higher ABV is hidden. 600ml bottle $9.99 Julio's Liquors Marlboro, MA.

Appearance: A 1” thick mousy, lacy white head floats on a hazy amber column. Smell: Malt and sugars behind a big whiff of fresh mown hay. Taste: Rich sugary malt lavors followed by a rich hop finish. The hop bitterness gradually arises There is a touch of pepper on the end Mouthfeel: The texture is really creamy smooth and really makes this beer. It has high medium carbonation, medium body.

Deep amber color with lots of cone shape head with good retention and leaving laces all over it.
Delicious fruity aroma of grapefruit and passion fruit with slightly toasted bready malt, not that strong for a DIPA though.
Nice bitterness balanced by an equally strong fruity and malty flavor. A tropical storm. Lots of passion fruit, grapefruits, papaya, over ripped oranges and pineapples with hints of pine, plum, toasted malts and rapadura (burnt sugar cane rocks). Dry with a long lasting bitter aftertaste with a citric touch.
Full body with a good carbonation. Alcohol of 9.5% ABV is completely in harmony with the recipe.
Great beer, much more fun than its small brother Indica. Although at a “low” 75 IBU for a DIPA, is very fun to drink and has a good punch. Could be a bit less sweet, nevertheless it is nice that they used rapadura in its formula and brought a multitude of tropical flavors. For that I am giving some extra points.

Vixnu is a dark yellow-amber beer with a little haze to it and a nice, fluffy yellow-tinged head right about one finger tall. Retention is good, and the head stays around as the beer drops while depositing some steady patching on the walls of the glass.
It's fairly hoppy in the nose, earthy and floral with some fruitier notes and a bit of pith that's compensated by some malty sweetness and a little of the cane sugar essence. A lightly alcoholic note peeks out, and there's some white pepper in the floral spiciness.
The taste pretty much follows suit, though I'd say that while this beer is certainly tasty and a pleasure to drink, it falls a little on the less hoppy side for the style. That's not to say it isn't hoppy, and it's got great balance along with depth and a pretty good complexity, but the hops are a little tame for a DIPA. Otherwise, all the floral, spicy, pithy, fruity, earthy, reedy, and malty elements are here.
The body is medium, and the alcohol provides a bit of dryness on the tongue that gives a bite as well. It's not astringent by any means, but a little edgy, though it is pretty smooth too.

Many years ago when me and the wife were planning to go to brazil, I found this brewery, so now that we finally went, I'm very glad to get to try some Colorado.

Pours a darker orange, with an off white two finger head, no shortage of spotty lace. The aroma is sweet malts, caramel, citrus, light alcohol, tropical fruits, and some floral notes. Bitterness on the taste isn't too stark; I'd venture maybe only 60-70 IBUs. Alcohol is subtle, and there's some malt sweetness accompanied by plenty citrus and tropical hops. Creamy feel, full bodied, slick, good carbonation. Doesn't feel too heavy though, still.

Admittedly, I'm reviewing out of order, but I liked this much more than the Invicta IPA.

Quick note: Most like a poor knock off of Enjoy By. Tasty but lacking in the flora/grapefruit aroma and not as malty sweet. Well balanced for the style.

Picked up a bottle in Durango, Colorado. I couldn't locate a bottle date or Best By date. Took the risk because I've been wanting to try Brazilian cerveja artesanal.

I get a big, foamy head on the pour that resembles soap bubbles at the sides, and a cloud at the top. Lace is plentiful. The body is copper and slightly cloudy.

There's a big grapefruit aroma on the nose, but it does smell slightly oxidized. Citrus prevails here and not much else.

Quite a loop I'm thrown for on the taste. The cane sugar offers an instantly noticeable and distinct, earthy sweetness that completely defies my sense's expectations. The big whiff of citrus I get as the glass approaches my nose takes a back seat. There's still some grapefruit-like hops, but they are taking a bit of a backseat on the flavor. I get some caramelized sugar and some caramel.

There's still plenty of bitterness to this IIPA, but it is tempered by the sugar. It's pretty unique, as I can't think of another beer like this. The body is medium but still drinkable and there's a long, bitter finish.

I call this a well-made beer with a unique twist that I'm always searching for in a beer, particularly an IPA. I'd drink this more often if it were available.

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Burnt orange, caramel colored body. The tan head is thick and foamy, leaving sticky lacing on the glass.

Aroma: Floral, spicy, and very peculiar. A musty, yet sweet note of honey coats over everything.

Taste: Warm alcohol comes through immediately, while the first note to hit the taste buds is a rather odd musty note. Fruity florals and earthy woods play a part, too. Sweet malts and perhaps the cane sugar come out in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied.

Overall: A bit of an odd one, this. Can't quite identify some if the strange notes at work.

Drink by some time in February. Dad got this in Brazil for $7-9 a bottle he said... uh. Good Lord.

Appearance: Looks good. Hazy golden orange with a nice head that stays a little while. Bits of lacing.

Smell: A copper aroma. It COULD be the glass, but I basically never get that aroma in any beer... maybe it's oxidation? Under that I get the malts and hops, but I feel like this one's oxidized. Strangely doesn't smell terrible though.

Taste/feel: It's missing the big hop flavor that's normal in the style. It has the hop bitterness and SOME hop flavor, but it doesn't taste like I expected it to. I figure that maybe it was sitting on a hot shelf in Brazil somewhere. The feel is pretty good ... about a medium body with a moderate carbonation.

3.5 overall for this one because something seems off about it and it doesn't taste like a true Double IPA. I like the label on this beer and it has some decent flavor, but I feel like this one just wasn't shelved properly. Definitely not bad though.

600ml served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a nice dark orange color. Slightly hazy. Forms big bubbled light yellow head. Great retention and tons of lingering soap-like lacings formed and left in the glass

S: Caramel malts, flowery hops and the very particular and peculiar smell of rapadura which orchestrate all together giving also a bit sour sensation in the end. Roasted malts. A bit smoked. Hops are quite citrus, grassy and piny

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of toffee, caramel malts, roasted malts, coffee and rapadura. Notes of raisins, grapefruit, orange zest. From sweet, it becomes quite bitter. Hops have grassy, citrus and piny notes. Intense bitter end. Rapadura gives it some light notes of sourness

M: Heavy, creamy and a little bit molasses body. Medium carbonation. Bittersweet caramel-grass aftertaste

O: Excellent drinkability. Just another Colorado masterpiece

First off, I'm half-Brazilian, so I'm happy that I was able to find out about this brewery recently. As I far as I see it, they are a diamond in the rough of the country's current beer industry, which seems similar to how America's was 10-20 years ago. Poured into a tulip glass from a 600ml bottle. No freshness or bottling date.

Pours a deep orange amber color, complete with a decent amount of carbonation and 2-3 fingers of a frothy, creamy white head. Pretty viscous, especially for the style at hand, although I enjoy how strong head retention is considering the ABV. Leaves lacing all around the glass in a cobwebby manner, which is delightful to see. Definitely a solid rendition of a DIPA.

The hops seem to have muted over time, as this may be an old bottle, but there's still a strong caramel, toffee, and brown sugar profile within. It's actually very similar to an East Coast DIPA in the sense that it lacks a piney, extra citrusy flavor and makes up for it with the bready, residual sugars imparted by the malts. The rapadura (Brazilian jaggery) in particular is no doubt adding extra sweetness to the finish. I also pick out a variety of exotic aromas ranging from passion fruit, mangoes, as well as orange peel at the finish. A little bit of booziness seeps through, but it adds sweetness and makes this seem like a strong beer in spite of the muted hoppy profile.

The flavor consists of an immediate sharp bitterness that slowly recedes and is replaced by a caramel/toffee profile that is further enhanced by a rapadura flavor that takes me straight back to my childhood. In Brazil, we'd call this "recheada," or "creamy" or "filling" in Brazilian Portuguese. The fruitiness in the aroma is not as present here, and often is subtle, but the caramel/rapadura combo do quite well here, as well as the slight hoppy citrus present. Honey, as well as a tannic nuttiness imparted by the malts, comes in. It's very much like fruitcake, although definitely not as sweet, save for the finish. There's not much for me to complain about here other than lack of hop brightness, but otherwise, it's a refreshing take on the style!

I'm glad that this brewery is a hopeful forefront in Brazil's potential victorious craft beer movement, and this is an excellent, new take on the style at hand. If you would have poured this to me blind, however, I'd probably immediately think that it was American made or something. Definitely enjoying drinking this, although the alcohol is well hidden. Hope to have it fresh some day. Very good stuff - can't wait to see more coming out of Brazil in this caliber.

Brassy hue with a very faint hazy. Massive clingy and sticky bright white head. Soft tropical fruits on the nose of papaya and mango, sweet grain husks, pine, and even a touch of kiwi oddly.

Smooth medium bodied brew with dull carbonation. Sweet caramelized sugar up front plays well with the soft tropical fruit flavors of papaya and mango. Sweet maltiness lingers. Fruity hop presence showcases itself to lend to flavor while on the back end of the tongue piney hop resin adds a spark of bitterness balancing the beer. for being 9.5% not a touch of detectable alchol. Literally none. As the beer warms the malt combined with the hops lends a plum like fruitiness to the mix making the beer even more a fruit cocktail. Burnt sugar tropical fruits, lingering sweetness, balancing bitterness, no detectable alcohol what more could you ask for? Super dry finish while fruitiness lingers.

So...a Brazilian IPA named after a Hindu god...this redefines unexpected pairings and I'm thrilled to extract this beer from my Craft Beer Advent Calendar, day 20. This was a very solid IPA that paired nicely with the spicy beef tacos we enjoyed for supper.

08/28/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Just a taste. I have my doubts on this one. Not too hoppy - I can't abide aggressive hops - but there was a very heavy mouth feel that kind of slapped me going the other way. Not necessarily a deal killer but not something I'd use to home in on a sweet spot. Maybe in another time & another place the heavens will be in a more beneficially alignment, but for now...not so much.

What an interesting beer!

Pours a burnt orange with big white fluffy head that lingers and leaves lacing.

The nose has hops and malts and some floral. I pick up some alcohol in the nose and I think chocolate.

Taste is malty and hoppy. Good balance however I find it To be very boozy. Too much so to be a beer I'd enjoy again.

Overall I think it's ok - but definitely not my favourite DIPA.
