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.

Bottle. Bottled on: 08/09/04. Clear copper pour with small light-tan head. Aroma is a little of citrusy hops and a little of sweet malts. Nice sweet malty backbone that gives way to some deliciously bitter citrusy hops. Smooth and caramely. There’s some bite but the bitterness does not linger very long. This is really unlike any other amber ale I’ve had. More like an APA.

This is a very well done beer- so far the best from Troegs that I have tasted. It has a clear amber color and is basically an ESB in anything but name (except slightly more hoppy). This beer was formerly known as Troegs ESB I believe and it has the subtle balace of hops, malt and caramel that one would expect but in this case without the characteristic British yeastiness. A fine ale

Pours lite with little head. Pretty dry and hoppy with a touch of malt that gets through. Great overall beer....

Not really to style. Not sweet enough. Much more an American pale or an IPA, I’d say. Enjoyable beer nonetheless, it’s just that the amber malt can’t cut through that much hop.

Deep gold nice with a off white creamy head that clings to the glass as you drink. great floral hop aroma and flavor that doesn’t overpower the maltiness of this brew.This beer seemed bigger in ABV then it appears to be.Great stuff!

Bottle. A nice amber color pour with a thin white lace head. Hoppy armoma with a nice little bite to it. Interesting finish, not as dry and I would have expected it with the smell.

A nice amber-gold, starts off with a nice hop flavor and finishes with subtle malt. An interseting malt flavor i might add. Definitly for the hopheads out there.

A nice golden amber coloring with an aroma that is definately floral. This beer has a taste that is very smooth but also offers some bitter hopness. A very good beer that I definately recommend trying.

Pours a great amber color with a long lasting head. Aroma is good but nothing special. Wow!!much better than expected. Nice malty, caramel flavor turns into a nicely hopped finish. Supreme balance of malt and hops in this one. Perfect carbonation. Best Amber ale I’ve ever had
