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.

Bottle. Nice amber color that pours with a medium head. More hops in the aroma then in the palate, do I sense a bit of floral sweetness? If you like a hoppy amber this is for you. Not a favorite but an ale that I would look for when available.

Hopback is a fitting name for this beer - the aroma is unmistakeably of hops, and there is only a slight amount of bitterness. There is also a taste of citrus and flowers. This is a surprisingly good brew, very hoppy.

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

I’ll spare everyone with the details this time. This is essentially a pleasant slightly malty amber ale with a fairly long nutty finish and a hint of hops.

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.
