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.

This is a top-of-the-line Amber. Malt, hops, and spice all present. Fresh, crisp, slightly carbonated, this is nice.

Pretty standard microbrew fare. For having the name Hopback you would think that the hops would jump out at you, but they don’t. Pretty smooth with medium character and nice finisht

Dark amber color with a good head and moderate lacing. Good flavor with a hoppy ending.

3.8
sneezey (135) - Hackettstown, New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Highly citrus aroma with a really deep color considering its medium malt taste. Strong grapefruit citrus that doesn’t linger too long and is neatly balanced by medium body and quick dry finish.

3.5
ESPh (135) - Branchburg, New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Pours nicely with a white head and copper color. Aroma is a little sweet, nutty. Nice malt flavor with a grapefruit like hop finish. Low carbonation. Nice beer.

Strong citrus hoppy nose, small white head, non-translucent brown orange. Crisp citrus flavor with a moderate carbonaton bite. Nicely done.

cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2005
This is a very well done beer- so far the best from Troegs that I have tasted. It has a clear amber color and is basically an ESB in anything but name (except slightly more hoppy). This beer was formerly known as Troegs ESB I believe and it has the subtle balace of hops, malt and caramel that one would expect but in this case without the characteristic British yeastiness. A fine ale

very tasty - is it really true to style given all the hops? who cares, it’s great

3.8
mctous (131) - Herndon, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Rich, complex hop aroma, good carbonation, and ample hop lace promise a hop bomb. The flavor delivers deep, lasting hop presence, balanced between citrus and earthy bitterness, and finishes long with its dry hopping. The caramel malt does not quite offset the massive hop infusion, but the blend of hops can be admired on its own.
