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.

dark orange with an inch thick white head. Nose is hoppy, but not as citrusy as I expected coming through the "hopback" system! Perfumy and soft, somewhat grassy, although some pine and orange rind start to come through once it warms. Body is rich and citric flavors bounce off the sides of my mouth...this tastes like grapefruit juice at first...where was the warning in the nose? Malts are soft, pale, sweet, light. Even the hops at the finish are bitter on the back sides of the tongue but never taking dominance like I expect. This is a fun beer. Tangy and fruity aftertaste like juicy fruit gum!

Thanks to my pal up in Philly, dberger624, for sending me this Toregs brew!

Pours a handsome amber / copper colored body with a bountiful tan colored head, there are sheets of lacing all over the place!
The aroma and flavor are thick with Cyprus and Pine tree mulch. Exceptionally spicy with that huge hoppy backbone, some black pepper; there are also terrific maltyness here, Great notes of caramel. The palate is very nice and oily… I really am enjoying this brew! I would think it would be more widely talked about than it is?

Somewhat malty with a good amount of hop aroma. Body is very well balanced, and makes for an easy drinker.

Bottle. A very nice, hoppy amber ale. Hops are citrusy and nicely ballanced by the malt.

Sampled at the Standard Tap, then decided to pass. Not much in the way of hops, just another bland pale (amber) ale.
