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.

Whew, what a scent! First thing that hits you, very aromatic. The process (hop back vessel) gives exactly what they wanted. Good initail head that fades slowly to a lace on the glass. Flavor is like it smells, but not as strong. Very flavorful, but not something I could drink more than one at a time. Not exactly my thing but I can imagine a good following for this flavor.

12 oz. Bottle. Pours a crystal clear copper with a frothy off-white head that leaves decent lacing on the glass. Great floral, hoppy aroma with a subtle caramel malt background. Up front the flavor is a floral with a faint citrusy hop taste, balanced nicely by a sweet caramel malty character. Smooth, balanced finish. Medium bodied. Excellent Amber Ale.

This is a beautiful looking beer. Amber, almost brown, slightly hazy, with an incredible tan head which hangs around for a long while. This is exactly what an ale should look like. Definite citrus hop and sweet malt aromas. The taste is very smooth with some citrus hop bitterness and a nice malty finish.

Incredible out of the box amber that is dry hopped for a floral nature unlike any amber on the market. Caramel, malt, and fresh hop taste

Pours an amber color with a small head. aroma is grapfruity and in general fruity. Flavor is sweet with a nice mouthfeel. It is missing some hops though. nevertheless this is a good beer.

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

good amount of hops in both the nose and flavor, nothing really special, but a decent little beer with not too much going on

Good hop aroma with a subtle background of malt. Hop and malt are pretty well balanced. The texture is good with some butter cut by hop acidity. The taste is balanced, just a little bit heavy on the hop bitters.
