Labove (427) - Rome, - JUN 12, 2012
Una vera APA con sentori agrumati e resina ma dall’amaro contenuto. Compiaciuto di un simile esordio, la qualità media delle birre di Retorto è molto elevata.

Jow (3226) - New York, USA - APR 24, 2016
Bottle at home. Ugly pale copper coloration white foamy head. Nose is floral and pine. Tastes of pine needles, orange pulp, perfume, some Italian salad dressing. Thin watery and fizzy palate. Lingering botanical flavors. Odd one to me.

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - FEB 11, 2016
Colore oro carico con riflessi arancio, schiuma bianca non abbondante e con grana medio-fine. Il naso è tutto tropicale e citrico con sentori di lichis e lime. In bocca corre veloce con un corpo estremamente esile che mostra un amaro più apparente che effettivo.

Idiosynkrasie (5937) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2015
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Not overly expressive, citrusy and minimally grassy, hoppy aroma, a touch of lime, rather unspecific fruitiness overall. Taste is minimally bitter, citrusy hoppy, hints of lime and lemon, quite neutral pale malty background. Unspectacular.

lello4ever (508) - ITALY - OCT 30, 2015
Colore tendente al marrone, paglioso e torbido, schiuma bianca e frizzante abbastanza ampia. Al naso lievito, spezie, erbe e un tocco di frutta esotica. Al palato un po’ sottotono, amarezza molto limitata anzi, corpo watery e sapore un po’ paglioso, carbonazione media. Non così buona come mi aspettavo, forse mi è capitata una bottiglia non molto in forma.

11.2 oz bottle from Sparrow - Downtown, 9/11/15.
This one has a murky orange colored pour with a fizzy head that dissipates quickly and leaves just a small ring of off-white head in a couple of seconds. There’s some light lacing as well. Orange juice aroma. Spice and pine notes as well, with a bit of pale malt. The pine comes through more in the flavor, as it tastes mostly bitter with a nice fruity and lightly malty sweetness to round it out. Fairly fizzy on the mouth, as the quick dissipating head would have lead you to believe. It remains rather drinkable despite the fizziness, with a lighter body, and a clean, somewhat dry close. Very orange juice-like overall for me, right down to the heartburn that I’ll probably get from this one later, but hey, that’s just one of the sacrifices we have to make for the beverage we love (or whatever cliche makes sense).

Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, straw, malt, and fruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and straw, leading to a bitter finish.
