The next stop in our Fresh Start series and maybe the most different! The star of the show this time is the Sabro hop. This hop is actually really new - it was cross-bred by fancy hop scientists in the Yakima Valley and part of the hop origin is from New Mexico rather than the usual European roots. Sabro was previously known by the sexy name: HBC 438. That was its experimental name.
The Sabro hop is an extremely distinctive hop & one that really shines in a single hop offering. Big, big notes of coconut, tangerine, papaya and long days leading into beautiful nights on the beach.
Smells & Tastes Like: Coconut, Tropical fruit, papaya, tangerine and stone fruit.
Food Pairing: Ceviche, shrimp and grilled pork chops
Fresh Start Series
Fresh Start is our series of rotating American Pale Ales, each of which highlights an individual hop varietal. Keeping a single malt bill and a hop schedule focused entirely on whirlpool additions and dry-hopping, we’re looking to bring out the most vibrant aromas and flavours possible. Hops deserve to be in their finest form for their moment in the sun. It’s a great way for you to become acquainted with a growing list of our favourite friends.
