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.

An easy drinking amber ale with good malt and a slightly stronger hop note than usual. One of my favorite session beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a deep mahogany amber color with an ivory head. Very sweet and floral hop aroma, especially for an ’amber ale.’ The taste is full but very clean--caramel and spicy hops. Nice bitter finish. Solid beer, and refreshing in more ways than one.

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

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.

I’ve only had 6 of the Troegs brews but out of all those, this one took the cake by far. It’s taste is simply exquisite. Good head. Good smell. I have to admit it’s a bit on the hoppy side yet still not overpowering. A little bitter. Medium-to heavy fruityness. Its a good brew to take with meals. All in all, I’d say theres no mans glass this beer isn’t good enough to fill!

Not bad dark amber color. It's hoppy but not as much as expected. It has some fruity bad notes which smooths out the hop ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber pour with a nice hoppy taste with a noticeably bitter finish. An overall balanced mix of sweet and bitter.
