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.

Very sweet hop aroma that is both grassy and grapefruity. Sweet & tart malty flavor. Plenty of grapefruit and a bit of caramel. Nice and creamy.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Nice clear amber color,small off white head that had a good hangtime then faded to a small lace.Light malt aroma with a nice hop and grapefruit side,nicely fruity and floral.Very nice flavor of malt upfront sort of sweet at first then you get hit by the hops,turning the taste to a bitter sweet grapefruit.The hops just keep rolling on this one,with a nice finish of medium bitter hops and citrus.Very nice brew and Thanks go to Falconseye for sending this brew and for my #1400 selection.

wbickerton (9) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2004 does not count
On tap and cask-conditioned. Dark-amber color that is clear with good effervescence. Large, creamy, off-white head that is fully lasting. Excellent lacing. Aroma is hoppy with a medium to strong herbal and evergreen scent and slight caramel notes as well. Excellent mix of sweetness and bitterness. Long finish that is evenly bitter and sweet. Excellent carbonation, body, and finish.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Light copper colored brew with a quickly diminishing head. Caramel nose and medium bodied. This is a pretty malty brew with not a lot of hop presence. Still very good.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 25, 2004
clear amber, caramel nose and palate, much more than a typical "amber ale". It’s almost like a "light" barleywine

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
On tap. Poured a medium orange with an averaged sized head. Aromas of caramel, spices and hops. Light bitter aftertaste (I expected more of a bitter bite with the name).

desurfer (1190) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Deep amber body with a small, foamy tan head. Aroma of spicy hops and a mild soapiness. Flavor begins with a solid, sweet caramely malt and kicks in with a bitter, flowery finish. Tasty!

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Amber with beige head. Citrusy, hoppy aroma. Light to medium bodied with a slightly watery texture. Good carbonation. Flavor was sweet and tart with that grapefruit edge. Clean, crisp, and refreshing. Good drink.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Copper amber with a big medium lasting tan head. The nose is light grapefruity hops and a thin taste of copper hops. The body is thin. Pretty good, but it just didnt do it for me.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2004 Bottle. Orangish color with a nice head. Floral and slightly fruity aroma. Hoppy flavor with a hint of sweet fruit (strawberry, perhaps?) that nicely balances the bitterness. Definitely worth a try.
