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.

Wow.. aroma is fantastic! Maybe one of the best aromas from a bottled beer- sweet malt and fruity hops. taste was a bit of a letdown compared to the aroma, but still good. Caramel malt and bready/toasty at first, finished by a fairly firm bitterness for an amber (although, I suppose, not for one named ’hopback’, but nonetheless I wish they backed down by a few IBUs).

Medium brown-amber with a good, tall beige head. Aromas of nuts, toast, grapefruit, and malt. Medium bodied, with a well-gauged amount of carbonation. Flavors are lively, dry but not drying to the palate. Bitterness is restrained until the finish. A well-rounded brew for hopheads.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2007 Very enjoyable Ale. Beautiful amber color! Almost perfect blend of malt and hops, however I’d prefer a bit more hops and a tad less of the caramel malt flavor. I definitely would recommend this and look forward to trying it again soon.

An excellent beer, period. Very hoppy and malty as well. Slight notes of caramel, maybe some spice. Well done Troegs!

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!!

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