- My Rating: [C+], I gave it a (3.0 of 5) on Ratebeer.com
Colorado Vixnu Imperial IPA – Cervejaria Colorado, 9.5% ABV – 330ml., (Ribeirão Preto (SP), Brazil)
on the front-left label:
“Our Brazil double IPA is named for the Hindu god of creation. With aromatic hops, plenty of malt and some raw rapadura cane sugar cane juice, it is a uniquely delicious and drinkable beer.”
- Style: Imperial IPA
- Taste: Alcoholic sweet cane sugar toffee barley malt
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: no
Visual: Pours translucent bring amber orange with lots of large bits of suspended sediment, barely any head, thin ringed retention, singular streams scattered about.
Nose: honey brown sugar barley malt. (lvl-4)-pungency
Attack: slick-thick-half crisp, micro fizzy, incoming alcohol heaviness
Mid-palate: alcoholic heat, (lvl-7)-sweetness, (MAIN) cane sugar, toffee barley malt, alcoholic bitterness & numbness
Finish: citrus hints, malty alcoholic finish.
Summary: Yikes there’s a whole lotta detectable alcohol in this one. Drinkable, but somewhat crude and unrefined.
