The Temperance Club review of: Sabro IPA by Coast Beer Co
Continuing with Coast Beer Co's adventure through the world of non-alcoholic, single-hop brewed beer brings us to Sabro IPA. The Sabro hop is a relatively new release from the Hop Breeding Company and is characterised by a complex fruit and citrus flavour, with hints of cedar and mint. With our journey into the single hop world starting off strongly with Idaho 7, can Sabro IPA deliver another delightful single-hop drinking experience?
Flavour review: Complex, yet balanced with citrus and bitterness
Visually, Sabro IPA pours similarly to Idaho 7 with its cloudy- light golden colour and white head. The aroma is centred around citrus, with a tropical touch of coconut. Onto flavour, and Sabro gives a great IPA drinking experience. As a craft IPA, it delivers the right balance of citrus, bitterness and sweetness, that makes this drink intriguing and pleasant to drink. The flavours that take centre stage here are citrus, with juicy tangerine and a soft exotic coconut, which adds just a touch of sweetness. In Sabro IPA, there's an elevated bitterness level when compared to Idaho 7, however, drinking a full can, the bitterness at no point becomes unbearable and sits alongside the citrus zing to create an IPA packed with flavour.
Value for money: Yes
As of February 2021, a 6 X 33cl cans can be brought online for £16.99. Great value for a great product.
With a noticeable increase in bitterness to Idaho 7, Sabro IPA is more comparable to a "traditional" craft IPA and delivers the flavour to match too.
