Backlogged. Draft and bottles. Pours an amber shade with large off white head, nice lacing. Notes of honey, bread, citrus hops, lemon zest, and caramel malt. Could have been a little smoother and less carbonated for me but still a solid offering from Stone. Cheers.

Pours hazy amber brown with light open cre head. Massive resinous fir with almost soapy peaches. Rich honey malts, biting carbonation, a bitter spike and long savoury malt finish.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a creamy large orange-white head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine and caramel. Flavor is about the same, line sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied. Pretty decent for an amber ale. Perhaps would be a red IPA if such a style existed.

This is the first time I've tried Stone Brewing Company' Levitation Ale. It should be served at 45 degrees, drink slowly to taste the flavor progression as it warms. Nose is citrus hops. M is light easy drinker, T is phenomenal, notes of smoke, bitter hoppy finish, in between I detected some Iced Tea flavors. Decent head, good lacing. Overall great Amber Ale. There has yet to be any brew I've had from Stone that isn't exceptional. Wonderful session beer. Thank you Stone!

Bottle at Bishops Folkis, February 2013.
Clear amber with a medium white head. On the sweet side with toffee, malt and some hops. Nothing sensational but easy to drink.

Aroma could be better. Nice mouth feel impressive for this gravity of beer. For low gravity beer, maybe best iíve had. This hsould be a style in its own. Very balanced and top notch beer. Taste is great, flavor where you want it to be. wow! How do you do this.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2013 Amber-molasses pour with a medium off white head. Taste is hops up front, then fruit and honey. Smooth palate. Very drinkable.

Cask @ ACAT - Pours a deep amber with nice head. Big rich malt and nice citrus hops. For such a small ABV this really brings some flavor. Really quite nice.
