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.

33cl bott@Strasbourg Mondial de la Biere. Nice golden-amber color. Interesting nose. Lemony. Zesty. Clean and sharp. Nearly tasteless. Low malt profile, bit of hops, just a point. Nothing else. Disappointing. Lighly bodied.

Pours an orangish amber, light head. Nice floral aroma. Excellent hop flavor and nice bitterness. Clean finish that leaves you wanting another one. At 6.0 they sneak up on you. This beer is a must for hopheads.

12oz. brown bottle. One of the prettiest looking pours i have seen. A deep red color and a gorgeous thick and creamy head that is very lacey. Has a hoppy floral smell to it. Not overwhelming hoppy as far as taste. It is very very smooth drinking with a slight caramel flavor to it and very subtle spiceyness. This is a very tasty and very drinkable brew. This is my first sample of anything from Troegs but i really like the mouthfeel and flavor and the way it finishes. 90/100

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 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

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.

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.
