3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014 On tap at Harryís Hofbrau. Massive grapefruit and sweet malt aroma. Clear gold with white head that collars. Flavor is citrus with strong bitterness. Sweet finish of residual sugar is surprising for the low Abv. Second review and this beer is really overly bitter. Had scored very high before but need to average it out.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a fluffy white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Massive hop aroma! Pine and grapefruit mostly. Somewhat tropical, very earthy, and pretty skunky, but in a good way. Taste is very odd and definitely different from any other IPA Iíve ever tasted. Huge earthy, tropical, citrusy taste. Pine, grapefruit, mango, several other tropical fruits that I canít quite put my finger on. Lots of hop oils. Very bitter and dry. Long finish of bready malt, pine and citrus. Taste is really too big for itís own good. Too many flavors that are amped up make this actually a bit hard to drink. Medium-light body, slick texture, medium-high carbonation. Good, but not something I could see myself drinking several of in a sitting. Taste is just too overwhelming.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a macro gold color. The thinnest of white heads with no lacing. Grainy hop aroma. Nothing but hops and bitterness. The bitterness lingers a long time and if you really focus it reminds you exactly of grapefruit. If I wanted a low alcohol beer from Stone I would pick Levitation every time over this.

Bottles from Caponeís and Whole Foods. Pours clear gold with splotchy off-white head. Nose is intense honeydew, pineapple, resiny malt. Tastes of pineapple, honewdew, pale malt, with a crisp, black peppery finish. This one is stellar.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. One of the most seductive-looking beers Iíve seen. Pure gold, just active enough, thin head. The aroma is amazing ... look up "smell of hops" in the dictionary, this is what you get ... fresh, oily, earthen, floral. All that carries to the drink. For those that dig those big, fresh-and-wet hop flavors, this is indeed your "go to" IPA. (#5474, 3/21/2014)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very light yellow, with minimal head. Aroma is marked by strong floral and citrus elements. Flavor is strongly floral, with marked pine-hop bitterness and some citrusy/grapefruit flavors. Pretty good, sort of a light IPA, if thatís possible.
