Bottle. Pours quite dark amber with a lovely creamy head with excellent lacing and retention. Aroma bit underwhelming, though. Full body, bitter and balanced in the mouth. Good follow through. Nice. CaptainBoosh (47) - - DEC 22, 2012
Pours clear amber-red from bottle with a white thick head. Aroma is mild hoppy with light citrus. Tastes slightly hoppy and floral notes, with a little citrus peel bitterness at the end. Light mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nothing special, but a good pairing with bar food as its lighter and crisper, but still with good flavor.

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. jimmbo123 (44) - Washington, USA - JUN 14, 2009
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.

Bottle to glass. Pours an opaque amber. Short lasting one finger light cappiccino head. Smell is grass and pine and a small whiff of dark malts. Taste is a balance of piney hops and once again, a bit of dark malt in the backbone. I can taste a bit of bitter citrus as well. Good carbonation. Feels surprisingly thick for a lower alcohol beer. Very good thegreat78 (42) - San Marcos, California, USA - JAN 9, 2008
A great amber ale, perfectly clear and a great tan thick head. a slight belgain character in the flavor with its well balance malts. Very clean finish! surlysober (41) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2008
FIRST TRIAL: Pours a nice ruddy reddish brown with a tightly packed creamy head; aroma is grassy hops and lightly toasted malt; the bitter/grassy hop finish nicely cleanses the palate and balances out the touch of sweet malt in the flavor. Overall this was a dynamite second beer and helped clean off the remnants of the supersticky creme brulee stout that was left on my palate from the previous beer. I was pleasantly surprised by this, and am now even more pleased that Stone has made it to Wisconsin. zen (41) - Long Beach, California, USA - MAR 23, 2004
Slight diversion for Stone. Pours nice decent head, scattered lace all the way down. Smells of caramel, pine and grain. Taste is of malt and laced with citrus. Light bodied with a nice pinch of hops at the finish. The hop profile appears a bit different with this Stone outing. A fresh beginning from Stone tailspins towards the end. All the right stuff and absolutely no direction or cohesiveness. Finishes dry, but left me yearning JonR (40) - - FEB 14, 2012
Hoppy at first but then easing back, head clings nicely along glass, would make an excellent beer with food or by itself, not overpowering on any one thing. A well made solid beer
