Troeg's Hopback Amber Ale

Troeg's is based out in Harrisburg, PA, several hours from me but I haven't heard of them until I started combing around for craft beers. I really love the label design and liked even more that they were an east coast brewery. Normally, I'd be a bit wary of labels showcasing a giant hop, knowing that I'm not a huge fan of overly pungent beers. This is a good flavorful ale, easy on the carbonation, and not too thick. This beer is an easy sipper with some sweet caramel pop to it, really easy to drink and have with food and did not leave a bitter or gritty aftertaste. I'm looking for more of these or hoping to find a variety pack to sample all the brewery has to offer.
