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.

Pours a golden amber color with nice transparency. The first sip hits you with the crisp hopiness that i crave. But yet it still maintains a refreshing quality that leaves you wanting another. One of my favorites for sure, glad to live so close to the brewery!

A great tasting beer which goes down nice and easy. I love to sit and drink 2 or 3 during one sitting.

Best session beer i ever had!Beautiful hop aroma with slight grapefruit maybe a very slight spice and good solid caramel malt backbone.Flavor perfectly matching the aroma.Not to bitter but yet very hoppy.Good complexity but very drinkable. Very well balanced.Beautiful deep amber color with a thick off white head with very good lacing.Also a very pleasant soft carbonation.Excellent beer for summer or fall.Can drink quite a few in one sitting even at 6% abv.Excellent job troegs!

This is maybe my favorite year round ale. My go to when I’m not buying a seasonal or trying new beers. For me it has the perfect amount of bitter and plenty of hops. I can be happy with just one on a weeknight or drink a 6 pack during a football game.

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.

It wants to be an ipa and an ale at the same time. A very balanced beer with fruity hops notes mixed with caramel taste of a well flavored ale.

This was an outstanding amber ale. Beautiful color with a lasting white head. Nice hoppiness thoughout and the malt keeps the beer in balance from start to finish. A great beer.

Excellent hoppy beer. Pleasant hops aroma, clear copper color, tastes clean and refreshing. I would have guessed it an IPA.

Pours an orangish amber, light head. Nice floral aroma. Excellent hop flavor and nice bitterness. Clean finish that leaves you wanting another one. At 6.0 they sneak up on you. This beer is a must for hopheads.
