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.

Our Ugly Fish IPA is now available with grapefruit! 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 it's 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!

Please Note: In order to better serve our customers, we are now offering our extract recipe kits with either Liquid Malt Extract (LME) or Dried Malt Extract (DME). The majority of our DME kits were converted from the LME version, which is why you may notice slight variances in the extract names and quantities on your recipe sheet.

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!
