This poured an amber color with a frothy head. It had strong hop flavors and scents. Also had a bread flavor in the end. Overall it was a good beer.

I was expecting something like a pale ale, but I believe Levitation more closely resembles an ESB. Nice red-bronze color and spicy aroma. It is actually quite strong, spicy and hoppy tasting. This surprised me, since so many Stone offerings have intense hop characteristics, I thought this one they’d develop and market a bit differently. Not my favorite Stone beer, but still something you can be proud to offer your friends.

Keg @ Jolly Butchers courtesy of Ozzy 2013/3/11. Big hoppy nose. Bitter but balanced. Great body, carbonation and head. A little dry at first before the sweetness evens it out then a lingering bitterness. Very impressive considering the modest ABV.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear dark amber. With a wispy head. Nice malty, bready smell. Some fruit is in there like apples. Carmel malts. Pear and apple cider fruitiness / tanginess. Nice hop bitterness afterwards. Pretty balanced in my opinion. Light to medium body. A little dry.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours semi-clear amber with little head. Smell has the bite of hops and substance of citrus, some combination of grapefruit. Simple malty flavor is overshadowed by the swift onset of citrus and hops. Finishes light and more pronounced hop and citrus display. The taste almost seemed to be seperated, with the small malt following the flow of liquid and the citrus hops flavor rising around the core (maybe levitating....). Light body, thin texture, and ample carbonation. Overall, a good ale.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Honey with very fleeting tan head. Some hoppy aroma. Opens completely bland and with a thin watery body. Not much happens with flavors and in the end there is a rather unrewarding and not particularly interesting strong bitter aftertaste. Stone Brewing can do much much better.

Bottle. Nice dark amber color with much fizzyness. Good head that doesn’t recede quickly. The taste is a balance of malt and hops, but the aftertaste is extremelly hoppy; no wonder its called Levitation ale.
