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.

I picked up a six of this in DE a few years ago and loved it. Hippy, malty, amazing. Picked up another six for thanksgiving and its missing a lot of the hoppiness. Still a great session IPA though.

On draft at Rhodeside Grill in Arlington VA. Delicious amber ale with an amber pour with minimal head. Slightly bitter taste but it made me fart so it's all good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is not very prevalent, but the taste is exactly what I want in an amber. It?s very crisp and refreshing.

På fat. Bärnstensfärgad med medelstort vitt skum. Doftbilden är grape, karamell, apelsin och svag blommighet. Grape, citronskal, karamell och örtighet i smaken. Krispig citron i eftersmaken. Mycket väl avvägd sötma och beska.

Bamsen78 (2949) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2013
Draught @ Fire Works, Arlington, VA. Pours clear light amber with stable white head. Faint aroma of nothing with a little bit of something, perhaps hops. Faint.,slightly bitter flavour of hops and yeast. Rather bitter and metallic aftertaste. OK but nothing revolutionary.

Draft sample at Rustico, Alexandria. Pours clear amber with cream head. Aroma of malt, fruity hops, citrus, caramel and grapefruit. Flavour is moderate sweet and over moderate bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Nice brew.
