Sabro™ brand HBC 438 was developed by the Hop Breeding Company and released in 2018. Sabro is an aroma hop that is notable for its complexity of fruity and citrus flavors. It imparts distinct tangerine, coconut, tropical fruit, and stone fruit aromas, with hints of cedar, mint, and cream. 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 flavor incredibly well into beer.

(Please note that the typical analysis reflects the average alpha and beta values according to our hop growers/suppliers. Actual values can vary from one batch lot to the next. We provide these values for reference only. If bitterness is critical to your particular recipe we suggest that you order slightly more hops than your recipe calls for (to overcome any potential variance in the actual bitterness of our current batch lot). Alternatively, feel free to contact us by phone or e-mail to determine the exact alpha acid values for the hops you intend to order.)
