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.

12 oz. Bottle. Pours a crystal clear copper with a frothy off-white head that leaves decent lacing on the glass. Great floral, hoppy aroma with a subtle caramel malt background. Up front the flavor is a floral with a faint citrusy hop taste, balanced nicely by a sweet caramel malty character. Smooth, balanced finish. Medium bodied. Excellent Amber Ale.

This is a beautiful looking beer. Amber, almost brown, slightly hazy, with an incredible tan head which hangs around for a long while. This is exactly what an ale should look like. Definite citrus hop and sweet malt aromas. The taste is very smooth with some citrus hop bitterness and a nice malty finish.

Incredible out of the box amber that is dry hopped for a floral nature unlike any amber on the market. Caramel, malt, and fresh hop taste

Good hop aroma with a subtle background of malt. Hop and malt are pretty well balanced. The texture is good with some butter cut by hop acidity. The taste is balanced, just a little bit heavy on the hop bitters.

Pours an amber color with a small head. aroma is grapfruity and in general fruity. Flavor is sweet with a nice mouthfeel. It is missing some hops though. nevertheless this is a good beer.

good amount of hops in both the nose and flavor, nothing really special, but a decent little beer with not too much going on

pours a clear, coppery brown with a moderate , off-white head. Head retention is also moderate. On the the nose, this beer has little to no hop aroma but what there is appears to be of resiny american hops. Plenty of malt sweetness in the nose that probably overshadows the hops. A medium bodied beer that is well carbonated. The beer has moderate malt sweetness that is balanced with more hop flavor and bitterness than was in the nose. This definitely a good American Amber Ale that I will be drinking again.

This is my fallback beer. Love it. The drinkability and the palate are what makes it.

12 oz bottle. Not sure on the freshness of this one, but there was way less hop bite than I expected. A bit of caramel came through, and although taste was pleasant, it wasn’t very strong. Not bad, but as others have said, kind of neutral.

My score does seem a little, but overall I was left unimpressed by this beer. I'm not one for overly hoppy beer and it seems as if they were trying to do too much with this brew
