Beer Find of the Week - Troegs Hopback Amber

25 October 2008

This weeks beer find of the week comes to us from Dugan's. Now I know many people love HopBack and many people have had Troegs HopBack Imperial Amber Ale in bottles....but ask yourself this... have you had it on draft? Dugan's just tap'd a sixtel of HopBack so do yourself a favor and stop down and try it. I'll conservatively say it's amazing on draft. I offer up this sixtel ring & cap (Thanks Charlie) as a temptation to stop in. Cheers! But wait..Who HAS had HopBack on draft in the past?? Please comment in!

Hopback has been one of my top beers for years and I've never had it on draft. I live in Allentown, but I do plan to make the ride up and try it sometime this coming week. Thanks Dugans!!!!!!

No surprise here, since I had the HopBack last night with you, but I very much enjoyed it as well. Very well-balanced between the sweetness and darkness of the malts, along with firm, but not overpowering bitterness from the hops. Easily an excellent session beer (even at a 6% abv) as it's tasty enough to delight the tastebuds, but not overwhelmingly so as to draw attention to itself. Troegs bills this as their flagship beer, and I can taste why. Definitely one to try. I don't see this one lasting long at Dugan's.

Zeno's has Hopback (on cask) 90% of the time.

Nice...and I know I don't even need to ask because it HAS to be amazing on cask.

Just had a growler of Hopback filled at the brewery a few weeks ago.
