Grapefruit Sculpin® Clone - Grapefruit Ugly Fish (Extract)

Grapefruit Sculpin® Clone - Grapefruit Ugly Fish (Extract)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

This is our normal Ugly Fish IPA that you know and love but with grapefruit flavoring included. Add the flavoring just prior to bottling or kegging and you'll have a great fruity IPA to enjoy.

Contrary to its name, Ugly Fish IPA is actually one of the most beautiful beers we have to offer!  Designed as a clone of the highly sought-after Ballast Point Sculpin® IPA, the Ugly Fish IPA is a hop masterpiece.  This beer starts with a very clean bitterness from Warrior® hops, and finishes with a beautiful blend of Cascade, Simcoe®, and Chinook late additions.  With almost 10 ounces of hops, the Ugly Fish IPA is definitely a hop forward beer, but does have a solid malt profile that stands up to those hops and helps to keep it reasonably balanced.

If you're looking to treat your taste buds to a beer that we think has been hopped perfectly, we highly recommend the Ugly Fish IPA!

Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.

To much grapefruit.
Pretty good exact brew, however adding the entire bottle of grapefruit flavoring was a bad idea. Might have been okay with half or so, but now all I taste is the grapefruit.

Same great Ugly Fish, go easy on the grapefruit
This is the third time making Ugly Fish, first time using the grapefruit extract. I went for it and did a full vial. Boy, I'm glad I LOVE grapefruit. 1/2 vial of extract will probably be plenty next time. This is adjustable to taste, so no star deduction on the rating needed.

Great IPA
Nice hoppiness and good grapefruit finish. The recipe said to use 1/4 to 1/2 oz. The flavoring came in a 1/2 bottle. Since I was kegging I just dumped in the whole bottle. The grapefruit flavor was definitely there! I took a growler of this IPA to a beer tasting party, and it got very high marks. Someone who does not like IPAs said this one was great!
