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.

mvp (138) - Harper Woods, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Red copper with a off white head and lacing that seems to last. lively carbonation, bitter flavor with a dry mouth feel. An amber Ale that slightly resembles an IPA.

DocJitsu (949) - Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Pours a crystal clear golden copper with a gigantic antique white head. The nose is that experience that occurs when both the malt and the citrus/pine hops fight for expression, but neither quite distinguishes itself. Mouthfeel is filling and slightly oily. The flavor is decidedly hoppy, where the nose was not. However, there is enough malt backbone to yield a sweeter ester in the flavor. In fact, if not for the moderately aggressively hopped boil, the result would’ve been a candied flavor. Pretty well-balanced, hoppy, and quaffable amber.

HeadyDE (502) - Delaware, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Draft offering..could have sworn I had reviewed this before..guess not..solid amber color..good hoppy nose with spice notes..very clean beer that packs a lot of flavor..intriguing spicy and hoppy characteristics and has just enough going on to be flavorful..solid session ale that goes well with food..

comedygene (8) - New York, USA - JUL 19, 2013 does not count
It wants to be an ipa and an ale at the same time. A very balanced beer with fruity hops notes mixed with caramel taste of a well flavored ale.

Hop Amber ale is one of my favorites, especially for a hopper red ale. Troegs puts out a number of quality products and this is up there near the top of my list for their beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
