Flavor & Aroma Profile of Sabro Hops
Sabro is an aroma hop that is typically used in only late boil additions, including dry hopping.
The Sabro hop has complex and distinct fruit and citrus aromas. It also has a unique blend of tangerine, coconut, tropical and stone fruit flavors underscored by hints of cedar and mint. Sabro proves to be a strongly expressive hop that translates its flavor incredibly well into beer.
Brewing Values for Sabro Hops
These are the common ranges that we've seen with Sabro hops over the years. Each year's crop can yield hops that have slightly different qualities, so these number ranges are based on history.
|Alpha Acid % (AA)|
Alpha acids are the main source of bitterness in beer. Longer boil times will result in isomerization of more alpha acids leading to increased bitterness. Learn more »
|Beta Acid %Beta acids are a component of hop resins responsible for contributing volatile aromatic and flavor properties. Beta acids contribute no bitterness.||4.0-7.0%5.5% avg|
|Alpha-Beta RatioThe ratio of alpha to beta acids dictates the degree to which bitterness fades during aging. 1:1 ratios are common in aroma varieties.||2:1 - 4:13:1 avg|
|Hop Storage Index (HSI)The HSI indicates the percent of alpha and beta acids lost after 6 months of storage at room temperature (68°F or 20°C).||24% (Good) 0.242|
|Co-Humulone as % of AlphaLow cohumulone hops may impart a smoother bitterness when added to the boil as opposed to higher ones that add a sharper bitterness to the final beer. Learn more »||20-24%22% avg|
|Total Oils (mL/100g)These highly volatile, not very soluble oils are easily boiled off, but add flavor and aroma to the finished beer when added very late in the boil or during fermentation. Learn more »||1.8-3.5 mL2.7mL avg|

Sabro Hop Substitutions
If the Sabro hop is hard to find or if you are simply out of it on brew day, you can try to substitute it with a similar hop. The old way of choosing replacement hops was done by experience and "feel". There is nothing wrong with that way. However, we wanted to build a data-driven tool to find your Sabro substitutions.
There are no manually picked substitutions for this hop. You can instead use our tool that uses data to find similar hops.
Is Sabro available in lupulin powder?
Yes! There is a version of the Sabro hop in lupulin powder form. Sabro lupulin powder is suggested to be used at about half the amount as you'd normally use with pellets. The Cryo/LupuLN2 (Yakima Chief Hops), Lupomax (Haas) and Hopsteiner products are pure concentrated lupulin powder, which add big flavor when used in the whirlpool or dry hop additions.
