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.

Recently had the cask version of this ale, and it was fantastic. Beautiful orange pour with a thick, light tan head that jest seemed as if it refused to let go of the glass (unreal lace). The hop profile hits the nose like a hammer, and the tongue like a pillow. Extremely drinkable, unfortuantley I had to limit myself as I was driving.

Nice! Dark brown pour with a thin white head that laced the whole glass. Aroma of hops. Taste of caramel and roasted malt until the swallow, then the hops grab the back of your throat and hold on. By the aroma youd think this beer was more hoppy, but it hides it well.Great full flavor and great balance.

Crystal clear appearence. The head disappeared quickly. Extremely smooth, not very complex in flavor but tastey nonetheless. I was expecting a little more spice. Kind of standard in many ways, but still worth a whack.

chyldking (14) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Nice amber pour, nose of caramel and pine resin-- fresh hops. Sweetness and body as you would expect greater than an IPA but well balanced by hops and carbonation. None of the cloying syrupy quality of many brown/amber ales. Goes down deceptively easily for a 6% beer.

floral aromas dominate this copper colored amber ale. lacing is good but doesn’t linger, head is minimal. initial sweet maltiness is followed up by the floral hops which give it a nice light bitterness which doesn’t linger. I think its a great beer for ipa lovers who maybe want to enjoy another style and still feel a little bit of an ipa’s bitterness.

a lot going on with this beer. not too much to say. I’ve had worse I’ve had better but all in all a solid drink. won’t leave a lasting impression but at least won’t disappoint.
