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.

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.

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.

12 oz. bottle poured. Deep copper color with a small off white head. Aroma is hops, pine, hint of citrus and hint of caramel/malt. Taste is hoppy, hint of citrus and caramel with a nice ending bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Mumpu (46) - USA - MAY 15, 2006
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.

Solid Ale. As good, if not maybe a hair better, than Stone IPA. It has a very complex flavor for an ale.

The quality of the hop flavor in this is the best I’ve tasted. Unless you don’t like hop flavor at all you should like this. I tried it side by side with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale which normally is at the upper limit of my desired hoppiness, but Levitation Ale was much hoppier and tasted better overall.
