A Note on This Beer
It’s Strata-tastic: With 100% Strata Hops, this brew is loaded with all the deliciously dank flavors a hophead could want. Crank the Dank: Kush-like aromas billow from the can the moment it’s opened. On the taste buds, it’s all tangy tangerine, ripe pineapple, and enough dank cannabis to make Cheech and Chong envious.
When Hop Culture held their New England-style IPA blind tasting, they included some of the highest rated breweries in the Northeast. And more than a few people were shocked when Pennsylvania’s Levante came out on top.
Since then, the little brewery has racked up a massive fan base — they even had to open a second location just to keep up with demand!
Show up at either taproom when they have a stash of today’s Strataphonic, and you’d better be prepared to wait your turn. This beer attracts lines of hopheads every time it drops!
Like @Vince G. who calls it “maybe the best I’ve had from Levante to date.”
There’s a good chance you haven’t tried a brew from this up-and-coming crew yet — they’re nearly impossible to find outside of the Northeast! But Strataphonic is an awesome introduction. Take a sip, and you might wind up sounding just like @Danny S.:
“Oh Boy. My first beer from Levante and it does NOT disappoint!”
Levante is one of Food and Wine’s Best Craft Breweries to Visit in Pennsylvania.

A smooth sipper. Refreshing flavor for a hot day. I'll be keeping an eye out if it comes around again!
Just like the description said - super dank. If you like that, you’ll like this!
Basic flavor. Very boozy. Nothing special here.
I love Strata hops, but this just didn't have the big juicy flavor of others I've had. Not bad by any means, but expected more.
Both hazy and dank. Took a while to get used to, but once I did, I liked it.
Strong tropical fruit aromas and smooth. I get a good amount of passion fruit with some dankness too. Really solid, as expected from Levante.
Easy drinking juicy. Goes down easy so if I had more of these, I could get into trouble. But it's not a beer I'd go out of my way for.
Smooth sipping beer, every sip you’ll have the tangerine hit the top of your tongue first as it goes down the bold taste of pineapple hits followed by the dank hops!Very unique IPA
Great citrus and dance on the nose, smooth and creamy
First levante beer... this is fantastic... put strata in top 5 favorite hops
Sticky dank nose and solid citrus taste
Uber-Dank. Uber-Effervescent. Uber-Juicy. So glad I had the opportunity to try this beer! Love the uniqueness and use of a single hop strain. Cheers!
