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.

From notes: Poured clear golden amber with a 3-finger off-white head. Mild, resiny hop aroma with a touch of caramel malt. Medium body, a touch oily. Light citrus hops flavor, a touch resiny, with some caramel at the back.

Mmm, a pretty tasty amber! It pours copper w/ a small white head that leaves significant lacing. The aroma is dominated by sweet malt w/ a tiny hop undertone. The taste is well balanced and quite drinkable. The malt flavor hits up front, followed by some nice bitterness, and ultimately ends clean. Pretty good stuff!

Thanks to Keef for this as an extra! Bottled: 12/22/10 Poured to NB globe. A: Burnt orange ale with little head development. Thin, translucent film of yellowed white foam. No evidence of carbonation. Spotty lacing. S: Malty, woody backbone with earthy hops in there. The nose is non-intrusive, good for an amber. T: Good caramel malts meld into this beer allowing for a heavier amber flavor. I really like this, but feel like it’s a one at a time beer. Premium for the beer. Sweet and malty. M: Sweet, creamy mouthfeel. Exceptional. Leaves the mouth slightly dry. Medium-heavy body with lower carbonation. Good. D: As stated above, this beer is too much to drink too many. Just too heavy for sessionability. Serving type: bottle 02-20-2011

Bottle. Courtesy of Falco242 on his trip East. Nondescript aroma. Clear dark amber with a lasting but thin light tan head. Malt first but moderate hop in the finish. Nice flavor but feeling its a bit overrated.

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

Tap. I love troegs but not this beer. Tough to drink. Not very smooth and the flavor was odd to me ---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.
