12oz bottle poured into a shaped pint glass.
After the initial pour, Hopback Amber looked exactly as a beer should. Beautiful copper color and a large three-finger head. Its beauty was fleeting; however, as the head disappeared quickly and a fair-to-middling lace remained on the glass.
The smell and taste were very good, with a crisp grapefruity essence. Hopback Amber is refreshing and clean, with a solid, but short-lived hops presence that is as fleeting on the tongue as its good looks were in the glass.
Hopback Amber could be a go-to hot weather, or post-workout, beer for hop heads. It was easy to drink and had me imagining I was sitting at a tavern's outside deck on a lazy, sunny July day.
