3.7/5 rDev -7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
12oz. bottle poured into imperial pint glass.
A: Pours a nice, well... amber hue... We all figured that one, though. The head is dense, off-white, and two fingers in stature, but fades down to about a 1/2" leaving some nice lacing behind. Head retention seems to be very solid.
S: A strong caramel malt presence balanced perfectly by some piney hops and a hint of citrus. A little bit of breadiness and earthiness underneath. The aroma is complex, but not very strong, so you can't be shy with your sniffer here.
T: Lots of bready malts along with some caramel malt sweetness. Hops provide a nice wave of bitterness while adding heap of piney flavor and some citrus notes. The aftertaste is extremely nutty with a lot of lingering bitterness.
M: Full-body with excellent creaminess, but doesn't fall into the "heavy" category. This one could definitely be sessioned, albeit slowly...
O: Troegs delivers another solid beer with HopBack Amber Ale. While it's not outstanding to me, this one is complex and offers a lot to be enjoyed while sitting pretty with a very sessionable 6% ABV. I wouldn't buy this in excess for the sake of its enjoyment, but I'd definitely snag a 6-pack for game day with friends.
