Sabro™ HBC 438 cv. is the newest release from the Hop Breeding Company. Sabro™ is an aroma
hop that is notable for its complexity of fruity and citrus flavours. Sabro’s™ pedigree
is the result of a unique cross pollination of a female neomexicanus hop. With a robust brewing performance, Sabro™ proves to be a strongly expressive hop that translates its flavour incredibly well into beer.

Sabro exhibits an incredibly complex blend of fruity and citrus flavours. It is described as an intensely unique hop, known for its complicated make up flavours which include tangerine, coconut, tropical fruit and stone fruit flavours, with hints of cedar, mint, and cream.

According to the press release about this new hop, Sabro’s exceptional flavour profile has its roots in its H. lupulus var. neomexicanus heritage. Indigenous to the American Southwest, the neomexicanus “wild hops” can be difficult to breed. However, HBC’s advanced breeding program, led by breeders Jason Perrault of Select Botanicals Group and Michael Ferguson of John I. Haas, successfully harnessed the properties of the neomexicanus heritage to create this new hop variety with an incredibly unique aroma and flavour profile.

“Sabro HBC 438 is the culmination of a two-decade-long breeding effort aimed at combining the uniqueness of neomexicanus genetics into a background with good agronomics and exceptional brewing qualities,” says Perrault. “It was a long process, but the results speak for themselves.”

Some good hops to pair with Sabro include Citra, Mosaic, and Simcoe. These hops have similar flavours and aromas, and they all work well with the tropical notes of Sabro.

Sabro hops come from the U.S. state of Colorado. The main farm producer is owned and operated by Jason Perrault and his wife, Denise Perrault. The couple founded the farm in 2008, and it has since become one of the largest producers of Sabro hops in the world. Sabro hops are known for their unique flavour and aroma, which is a mix of blueberry, tangerine, and pineapple. They are often used in IPAs and other hoppy beers.

Idaho 7 is a hop that goes well with Sabro. It has a tropical fruit flavour that pairs well with the citrusy, piney flavour of Sabro. The two hops work together to create a juicy, hoppy beer that is perfect for summer.
