On tap at Jupiter. Described as an extra pale ale by our server. (not sure if this is related to the HaloX reviewed elsewhere)

Creamy, puffy white head on top of an golden orange colored brew with a sickly green aura. Faint aroma of citrus but mostly pine. On the tongue the beer begins slightly sweet but is immediately overwhelmed by biting hop bitterness, with no malt backbone to balance. Offputting, lingering bitterness. Very little hop flavor. Medium bodied. A little bit better with pizza to distract you from the sharp bitterness.

Overall: I love Stone Levitation and I love hops in general, but this was just plain nasty and poorly done.
