I told myself no new hops and then I saw some good reviews on these so I grabbed a pound of each.  I know a few have talked bout strata but anyone play with Sabro?

Do we have to take a hop physical inventory for you to realize that you have entirely too many hops in stock?  :lol:

Sabro is the hop formerly known as "Ron Mexico".  It's neo Mexicanus.  A bit earthy for my tastes.  I tried an all Sabro beer last year at a hop farm and had to try to think of something nice to say about it!

I have acquired 35 lb. of hops in the last 2 weeks, on top of maybe 15 lb. I already had.  I have TOO MANY hops!

You have my address for those extra hops :)

Your review on Sabro is much different that this from a NEIPA style group I belong to... Just have to try them and see.
"this hop is awesome. It got a strong aroma and taste of pineapple, citrus fruit and coconut. The coconut part tastes like real coconut. Really bizarre and really good. When I tasted it before the first dry hop, the pineapple dominated and the coconut was more in the background. Seems like the coconut flavor pops out the most during dry hop. If you wanna brew a "Pina Colada IPA" without adjuncts, this is the hop for you This should pair great with other fruity hops"
