COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Troegs HopBack Amber gets its unique name and taste from the HopBack Vessel in our brewhouse. Packed full of whole flower hops, each batch circulates through the vessel, creating a fresh hoppy aroma, spicy taste and rich caramel note that defines this signature amber ale.

Bottle & on tap. Pours a nice orange amber, off white thin head. Aroma is caramel and bready malt, floral hop, light pine, toffee. Flavor is med/ full sweet, malty, but finishes with a nice bitter hop profile not typical of most ambers. Medium body, sweet and hop.

Bacterial (1549) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Draft at some little place in one of the terminals at National Airport in DC. Amber pour with a slight white head. Big floral hop character in the taste and nose. Slightly bitter and strong malt finish. Solid.

Lighter, even for an amber ale, and decidedly reserved for an aggressively hopped beer. Aromas of hop flower, bitter melon, resin and paper.

Bottle courtesy of Bruce, thanks! Hazy amber color, small white head. Aroma of caramel and grass. Taste is smooth caramel at first, then floral pine and fruit.

crajun (960) - , Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2014
nice beer from Summer SS. I still think most of these highly rated ambers are more apa than amber, but this was a good beer - some toffee/caramel in aroma and taste. plenty of hops but this was well balanced; much sweetness with good non bitter hops. well done!

Tap sampler at Troegs in Hershey, PA. Plenty of hops detected on the nose and taste. Maybe overdone with respect to hop saturation.

Keg at Munich Taphouse, squeezed a mini session into 15 minutes, before catching plane, 24th July 14, this was mixed in rapid succession with Nugget Nectar and 3 Floyds Pantzer Wolf, tough acts to follow, however this is solid and a pleasant amber.
