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.

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.

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.

Tröegs HopBack Amber Ale is a very clear, solid amber ale with a thick, dense, yellowish head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a fresh hoppy aroma, citrusy and grassy with a hint of sweetness. It’s medium bodied, foamy and very smooth. The finish is clean and dry. This is beautifully balanced. That touch of sweetness seems to go with both the juicy hops and the caramel malt. There’s a little bit of roastiness in the after taste. This is an ideal beer!

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

Tap sampler at Troegs in Hershey, PA. Plenty of hops detected on the nose and taste. Maybe overdone with respect to hop saturation.
