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.

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.

A good hoppy ale (I’d call it an IPA). Had this on tap at home last summer and loved it. It poured a slightly dark amber color with a slightly hoppy aroma. It’s also very well balanced.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2005
on tap at macgrady’s, pour is a deep amber color with a creamy white head. the scents of sweet caramel malts and flowery hops are strong, with hints of citrus. the flavor is very nicely balanced, starting with sweet hops, sliding to the malts, ending with the citrus flavors. a nice medium body with a bitter finish, but it doesnt linger around. a very nice and easy to drink ale.

Out of a fresh bottle it would seem1-27-05 Peachy aroma right out. Amber color nice and clear, white head laces nice. Hoppy citrus and peach flavor to it mild bitter tail. Finishes clean,crisp. Not my favorite but good just the same.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2005 Pours a shiny reddish-gold with a creamy tan head. Very nice looking ale. Smells very hoppy with citrus, peach and a touch of butterscotch. Taste is hoppy with peach and citrus being the main flavors. Very good.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a reddish-gold with a light, thin, tan head. Smells are sweet and citrusy with some strident hoppy aromas. Interseting combonation. Taste is a strong fruity malt. Peachy undertones in its sweetness. Followed by a solid hoppy flavor, well balanced with the malty fruitiness. Again, flavors are nicely balanced. Lightly sticky mouthfeel with a lingering bitter hops finish. Creamy. A very interesting and drinkable ale.
