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.

Spicy delicious aroma. Nice golden brown amber color. Spicy citrus cake flavor with beautiful hops and a very nice malt balance. Very hoppy.

Solid hops with apricot and citrus flavors. Hint of alcohol flavor a bit distracting, but cuts right through spicy food. Almost grapefruity bite at the tip of the tongue. Nice to look at, a bright amber color with decent light head.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Sampled from 12 oz bottle at the Mondial. Moderately clear, bright amber with a touch of lasting head...Cascade hops dominate the nose but there are also big handfuls of just-ripe blueberries and light bready yeast...beautifully creamy body, sweet and fruity with no alcohol presence, lots of caramel and a hint of tar and cigar smoke to finish. Quite nice.

2005 bottle at Mondial, 6/4/05. Small amber-copper colored head recedes to ring. The body is a lovely deep, burnished copper, rather bubbly. Smells of cascades; orangey/citrusy. Yeastiness as well, with a bit of munich malt. Begins with dry cascades, bitter and floral, with some lightly toasted grains through the middle, mostly dry. A rather easygoing amber ale, has a hard mouthfeel, filtered and force-carbonated-like. As it warms and breathes, I get notes of caramel, cherries, dates and a toffee finish. Medium-body, a bit overcarbonated. Yeasty fruits throughout, lots of candied oranges and caramel. Pretty simple, but quite drinkable and refreshing. Reminds me a bit of Avery Redpoint.

I liked this full bodied amber ale. The malt character is good as well as the floral hop aroma. This beer belies it’s alcohal level because it goes down so smooth.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2005
Sampled at le Mondial de la bière 2005. Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. Interesting aroma of spicy and citrusy hops with caramel and malt. The hops is less present is the flavor, it’s there but not as interesting, there’s caramel in there, the finish is mild and bitter. The body is medium with a creamy texture, the carbonation level is moderate. Good aroma, wimpy flavor.

Mondial de la Bière de Montréal 2005. Robe blonde claire. Légère et saveurs tout en douceur. Beaux arômes épicés d’agrumes... Très intéressant.
