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.

Tremendous Beer. Troegs nailed this one. Hopback has a great mix of hops and more hops

BOD 8/15/14. Clear amber pour with just a hint of dark ruby. Very nice head with exceptional lacing and very good retention. Nice light nose of blended hops, mostly pine with herbal notes, over a somewhat dominate caramel base. As it warms, light spicy hop notes are present. Light medium bodied with a nice slightly oily texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence on the finish. Very well balanced flavor profile with a bit of complexity and quite good intensity for an amber ale. It begins with a blend of hop flavor that transitions to mostly pine as the bitterness begins to creep in. Beneath all of this, is a good caramel backbone that takes center stage as the mild bitterness releases into the finish. The finish is slightly sweet over a mild pine oriented bitterness with a touch of pepper like spice.
