King Henry English IPA

ABV 5.3%    IBU 65

SILVER Medal - 2014 Perth Royal Beer Show

The signature brew of Three Rivers Craft Brewing, King Henry is a moderate to highly-hopped India Pale Ale, based on Marris Otter barley from Northumberland (used in many great Scotch whiskies) combined with additions of Crystal malt from Yorkshire and Caramel Wheat and Biscuit malts from Germany and Belgium. The hops are all English with Challenger used for bittering and Fuggles and East Kent Goldings for the flavour and aroma. As with most Three Rivers beers, the brew water is ultra-filtered and then “Burtonized” to replicate the best brewing water in the world from Burton-on-Trent. The King Henry shows a clear, deep amber or light copper colour and holds a generous head. The aroma is hop-driven and the flavour is also dominated by the same assertive hop bitterness – floral, fruity, earthy and slightly grassy.
