pours an amber color w/ a pretty thick white head and some nice lacing. Aroma is some citrus almost grapefruit skins with a light carmel and almost a floral part. Palate is pretty avg. Flavor is fairly light some carmels and basic citrus.. like a real light ipa w/ some over grains.. not bad, not stellar.

Bu au Mondial 07. Couleur terre-cuite, très peu de collet. Arome d’houblon très sucré. Goût d’houblon liquide et amère. Passable!

nice dark copper color. malty grapefruit nose. huge clean grapefruit flavor remains for a nice mouthfeel. light caramel and hop balance make this a very good amber. a change from stone’s usually aggressive beers...

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2010 Bottle and on Tap. Pours a a light amber color and smellls sweet and hoppy. It tastes sweet and fruity with some hops and malt. This is one of the best amber ales I have had and one of my favorite beers.

Tap. Clear amber pour with a squatty tan head. Floral aroma with pine and malt. Subtle malt and hop blend with a roasty end. A nice change from Stone.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2007
A nice piney hop aroma. Pours a brown with a red hue and a one finger thick tannish head that hangs out throughout the drink. Flavor is initial piney flavor, Pretty intense for the style actually. Some nice roasty malt, some chocolate flavor also, comes in at the end. The body is pretty damn light actually. This is obviously Stone’s session ale. Pretty good really.

Bottle. Pours an amber color in the glass with a very thick, frothy, off-white head that leaves thick lacing down the glass. Hoppy yet sweet aroma with a malt background. Nice malt and hop mix in the flavor. Light body and slightly watery. Mild bitterness throughout. One of the better amber ales I’ve had.

12oz. Bottle Thanks for the opportunity. Poured a slightly hazed amber into my pint glass. Orange highlights appear when held to the light. A 1 finger white head sits on top but fades to just a top coating fairly quickly. The smell is mostly malts. There is a caramel sweetness along with a raw doughiness that definately smells inviting. A little floral and citrus hop scents come through toward the end. Nice. The taste is similiar to the smell. Malt up front in the form of dough and a small touch of the caramel. The hops come through a little more in the taste than in the nose. There is a decent bitterness in the swallow that lingers around for a little bit. The hops seem to awaken my mouth when they come forward. The flavors are a little on the weak side. Mouthfeel is good. Medium bodied but smooth and creamy. Moderate carbonation. This is a very sessionable beer from Stone. Easily the most sessionable of their beers if encountered. Overall Levitation is a good beer, especially if you want to sit down and drink a six pack or so. I wish I could find it around here.

IEBAILI (125) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Amber brown color, medium tan head that falls quickly but leaves some lacing. Aroma is of light citrus hops with sweet, almost roasted malt background. Taste is dry for an amber, moderate hop bitterness. The flavor is a little deeper than others I’ve had in this style, almost with lighter versions of porter flavors. The texture is a little thin and the finish is a bit rough. Not my favorite Stone, but a decent choice for a session beer.

This was a suprisngly decent beer that I tried on tap during the Stone tour. Yummy taste with a nice waft to it. Not one of stones bigger and bolder offerings, but good nonetheless.
