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.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2013 Bottle into pint glass.Extra cold. Great flavor and smooth. Cold run on this one for a few months as it is very enjoyable. My second favorite troeg behind nugget nectar.

Nice head and amber color. Very hoppy aroma and a nice smooth feel in my mouth. Very good IPA like beer with a smooth hoppy taste that I would drink again.

Bottle pour. Great mix of amber and hoppy IPA style. Nice citrus with a toasty malt background. Good amount of citrus, floral, without too bitter. Honey, biscuit, toasty malts. Gorgeous color. Perfect early spring beer, just enough hops, but not huge IBU’s. Nice work troegs.

Poured a clear amber brown with a minimal head but good lacing throughout. Sweet malt and hop aromas with mild citrus dominate ... not what I expected from an amber. Body was medium to light with good malt backbone, lingering hop flavors and a lasting sweet finish. An excellent amber!!

I very much enjoyed this amber ale, one of my favorites of the style, so far. Aroma was nice, perhaps reflecting it being "hopback"

Spicy delicious aroma. Nice golden brown amber color. Spicy citrus cake flavor with beautiful hops and a very nice malt balance. Very hoppy.

9-13-10. For my 50th review, I wanted to do a local standard. I haven’t had this brew in a while, so this should be fun!: Ap: As the style suggests, the color is a crystal clear amber, with a slight haze posing as a head, and a tornado of bubbles (carbonation) rising from the bottom to the surface. Ar: Mmmm..Nugget leaves and caramel malts caress the nose on this one. T: A total balance of flowers, caramel, with a crispness to the finish that borders on perfection. P: About as smooth as it gets, with nary a trace of wateriness anywhere. O: Some may consider 6% ABV a bit high to be a session beer. However, I’m certainly enjoying this session.

Poured from a growler straight from Troegs Brewery. A amber color with a nice medium head. The smell of hops and caramel, Hit the nose. The taste is almost like an IPA but dialed down, It has sticky, feel with average carbonation, with what i thought was a long finish.

Hoppy! Not too much, though, so I can stand it! Not a refresher... good with dinner... like hamburgers! Yum.

A very enjoyable amber ale with a delicious aroma and smooth finish. Strong caramel and hoppy flavor make a really good, though not unique, combination. Head dissipated quickly.
