This beer pours a bubbly, clear, auburn color with thick, tan foam. The aroma is mainly pine with a hint of fruit followed by a very bitter, acidic flavor. It has a very thin almost watery mouthfeel. Stone Levitation Ale is not an easy beer to drink. NOT recommended!

Smells like bad cooked vegetables and maybe grass. Strongest smelling beer I have smelled so far.

Tastes initially like pin. Finishes very dry, bread-like, and bitter.

Amber colored beer with a rapidly fading head.Aroma is floral hops.Taste is pine and grapefruit.This taste like a mix of a beer and a pine cleaner.This is not something I would recommend or purchase again.Ahhh nothing like the taste of PineSol early in the morning.

From notes:

Pours a deep, dark ruby/chestnut brown color with dark golden orange hues when held to a light source and a 1.5 finger frothy off white head. Decent retention slowly fading into a lasting ring that leaves a spot or two of lacing on it's way.

Very bland aroma which is very surprising for a Stone beer. Slight earthy hops with hints of pine needle as well as some hazelnut and caramel malt.

Buteer earthy, piny hops up front that linger throughout without much balance into a tongue assaulting dry finish. The malt presence is minimal as best and their is an odd spicy character that makes this beer pretty bad in my opinion. One dimensional with a bone dry finish. I usually like everything Stone makes but this was a wreck.
