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.

Draft. Amber pour with nice head. Caramel, citrus, nice balanced bitterness, hop. Overall a nice balanced beer but a bit body would make this a great beer.

rederic (3251) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 18, 2012
12oz bottle, dark amber color, with a beige head, nice bready, grainy toasty, caramel malt nose, with some mild floral leafy hop accents in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a fruity, flowery citrus, piney, leafy hop character, with a light caramel, toasted malty backbone, leading towards a lingering fruity, leafy hop bittering finish.

Nice, frothy head and nice lacing. Nutty, spiced aromas. Bitter hops, slight cinnamon, very malty. Good amber beer.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear copper with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of caramel and toffee, along with delicate lemon and citrus, grass and a touch of pine. The flavour is moderately bitter throughout with mostly pine notes but some grass; this is paired with caramel malty and grainy notes for balance. The finish is long and hoppy with a moderate delicate bitterness. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth, watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a decent amber ale but the hops could be more complex. 2014-04-27

Bulk_Carrier (3539) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Reviewed from notes. I had this in a pint glass. The appearance was a gentle dark amber color with a nice level foamy one finger head with an adequate foamy lacing sticking finely to the sides of the glass. The smell had a decent amount of caramel malts up front and lets a gentle amount of bitter citrus hops coming in slightly as the beer warmed. The taste was bitter and sweet ranging at somewhat different times but ends up combining more as the beer warmed. The aftertaste was really nice as it was pure bittersweetness altogether. The finish was somewhat dry but still had a nice backing by the hops and malts. On the palate, it sat about a medium in body and had a decent sessionable quality to it. Overall, I say this was a pretty good American Amber well worthy of having again.

RexTalionis (3474) - FINLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Draught. Darker copper in color with a whitish head. Citrus fruityness behind that caramel malty and sweet tea leafyness in aroma. Malty sweetness with some bitterness in taste. Nice grassy hoppy finish.
