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!

I never bought this kit before—largely because the name turned me off. When I finally read the description of the brew and discovered it was modeled on Ballast Point’s Sculpin, I decided to try it. Very good brew. I will definitely brew it again. You guys might want to consider a new name.

Great IPA
I have been doing all grain for a few years now, and when my equipment needed repair I tried this extract kit. The flavor is great, the hops are strong but not overpowering or overly bitter. Would suggest to anyone.

New House Beer
This beer is the absolute best value in extract kits! I challenge anyone to prove me wrong. I used Omega "Hot Head" ale with two weeks primary, 3 weeks secondary and an additional two weeks in the bottle. My (Lite drinking) family even raved about this beer. This is now a staple in by home brewery and I cannot say enough about the morebeer customer service! Cheers and happy brewing. Buy this kit now!

Great Brew
Fist time making this kit. It is a great IPA well balanced between hops and malt. Pineapple flavor adds that little extra.

Amazingly delicious beer, no haze, lovely smell.
Great beer from extract, followed the instructions, came out around 7.5%

I love Ballast Points Sculpin IPA, Ugly Fish is certainly no ugly clone! I'll be placing my order for another kit soon.

Excellent Beer
This was brewed based on ballast point, but I would also compare it to Heavy Seas Tropicanon. Great citrus flavor and really nice aroma.
This is the first beer that did not taste like a malt extract kit. Best IPA I've had yet.

Great beer, very close to Sculpin; ABV% higher than target
Brewed this as a 5gal extract batch, started with 6.5 gal water in 8gal pot with steeping grains. Ended up with almost exactly 5 gallons in the keg. OG came in at 1.072 and FG finished at 1.005 after 2 weeks in primary @ 70F [used a 1200ml starter of US-05 due to higher OG]. Brew is delicious, great balance, ABV is just a bit high putting this one in the "one and done" category - or final beer in a session. Will brew this again and may try some additions (grapefruit? habanero? ) since this is so balanced it should take additional flavors easily.

The quality of my brews have improved since I've switched to kegging, but this one hits it out of the park. My only mis calculation may have been boil off, which was a little excessive so my OG ended up on high end at 1.076.

My starter ended up infected, so I did have Wyeast 1272 on hand as backup. But since the OG was high and my last beer I don't think finished a full ferment, I I also threw in a package of Safale-05 with the Wyeast @ ~66 to 68 degrees. I had bubbles within 12 hours, which died down in about 4-5 days. 15 days in the Spiedel, moved to keg, ended with a final gravity of 1.016, and straight into the keg. 20 PSI for 4 days, then down to 13. Perfect to drink in 6 days.

I've been to the Ballast Point brewery and had all the Sculpins flavors side-by-side. I don't have any at the moment to do a side by side with this, but the flavor is close enough, and this is friggin delicious even if it's not exact. Mine's a little cloudier but I'm a low tech brewer - t hat's only cosmetic anyway.

I don't think this keg is going to last long. I made the mistake of letting my neighbors taste - they've come back! A+ kit, will buy again for sure.
