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.

Koelschtrinker (17292) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Vollmundig hopfiger Antrunk mit deutlicher Hintergrundherbe. Der Hopfen stumpft etwas ab und verliert an Volumen, ist aber weiterhin der stärkste Ton. Hier scheint das Bier mehr auf Süffigkeit ausgelegt, auch die Herbe wird milder, das Bier ist nun weniger aromatisch und kaum noch etwas Besonderes. Zum Schluss malzig-herb, einen Ticken säuerlich. 10/10/8/8/11/8

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle. A clear, dark golden to amber colored beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is lightly bready, with caramel malts, perfumed candy and some pine cones and grass. It’s medium to full-bodied, with a soft carbonation. Rather dry. Less bread and caramel in the flavor, a decent bitterness showing up and there’s also a piney, grassy touch and some candy hints. Mostly bitter finish. A rather boring one, but at least it drinks easy. 150625

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
Amber and fairly cloudy. Not much head. The aroma has some mild hops and caramel. The palate is more caramel and some light bitterness. A bit chewy. Medium-dry finish, fairly standard mildly hoppy amber like I’ve had a thousand times.

MiP (15272) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2011
Cask, 5.8%, dry hopped with simcoe. Grassy hop aroma. Hazy red amber colour, no head. The flavour is hoppy, slightly grassy, a bit sweet. Well-balanced. Low carbonation, probably because of the cask.

bhensonb (14080) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Bottle from Half Time. Pours dark ruddy amber with a 3 finger foamy beige head. Aroma is light floral and resin over lightly roasted malt. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is nicely hoppy with residual roast malt. Seems a bit peppery. Finishes hoppy, though not aggressively bitter. A lot more bitter than otherwise though.

Tmoney99 (13466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2006
Bottle. Poured a copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. Good citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Moderate well balanced hoppy flavor with a medium bitter finish. Good brew.

argo0 (13233) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 19, 2003
UPDATED: APR 8, 2008 (4/8/08, 12oz bottle, thanks Peregrinari) Large and fluffy beige head atop clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, grapefruit/orange, light pine. Taste is moderately sweet, orange/grapefruit, caramel, light cookie. Soft, light-medium body with some resin. (8/4/7/3/14)

(1/19/03) Clear amber body with minimal tan head. Aroma is sharply cascade hoppy. Tasting it, I understood where the name came from -- it’s got a mild malty body, until you get to the strong HOPpiness in the BACK of the taste. Finishes with moderately sweet grapefruit that doesn’t linger. (8/4/7/3/14)
