This is a "lighter" ale that does very little in the way of flavor, and much like other Stone pale ales, is just a lot of hop bitterness. Im okay with that, because I enjoy that style, but it feels like a missed opportunity to do something a bit different here.

Bebum (851) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Amber, tall and persistent head. Medium body, strong but austere and simple flavor profile, watery mouthfeel and finish, very low alcohol and carbonation, short to avg length. Bitter and dry, nice acidity, Very hoppy, grapefruity. Despite the fame, the most disappointing of all Stone beers, definitely not my style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured a clear amber hue w/ a thick creamy off-white head and sticky lacing. Moderate sharp hop aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold bitter finish of lasting duration. Tastes are pine, grass, tobacco, orange, and rye toast. Medium bodied w/ balanced mouthfeel.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Translucent light brown with small off-white head. Aroma is big herbal hops, medium body, low carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is herbal hops with some caramel malt.

Heatwaves (54) - Orange, California, USA - AUG 1, 2005
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 theyd develop and market a bit differently. Not my favorite Stone beer, but still something you can be proud to offer your friends.

bpttle poured a clear anber with an amber head. Aromas of carmel and a little fruitiness. Palate is crisp. Flavors of carmel, toffee and a touch of fruitiness with a dry slightly sweet finish.

You cant do much more than this with an amber ale. Light brown and lightly carbonated. There is an aroma of herbal hops that promises a bitter beer. And the flavor is a lot like a bitter, with very light hops and a light malt body.

ABUSEDGOAT (2675) - California, USA - MAY 29, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 Deep amber body with a moderate to large head with decent lacing. Aroma is like a lighter version of ABA with the exception that it has the Amber Ale characteristics. Hoppy with citrus and caramel, some grapefruit. Pretty easy to tell that this is a Stone brew. Fairly typical amber ale with the stone house character that I dont like.

At 4.4% it is not a strong as the label would insinuate. Levitation smelled mildly of peach and tasted of caramel. It had good balance between hop and malt. A nice mid-range amber ale.

ewestern (257) - Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Starts with a nice creme colored head atop a deep golden-amber beer. Slightly yeasty aroma that could have been stronger. Tasted flat with some hops, had a watery feel to it and a bitter finish.
