Sculpin® IPA Clone - Ugly Fish (All Grain)

Sculpin® IPA Clone - Ugly Fish (All Grain)

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

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!

Can you get this kit with whole leaf hops only?
Dan Stephens on Apr 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I’m pretty sure all kits come with pellets unless otherwise noted. You could call the customer service number for clarification.

Great summer kit!
Grain bills are hard to fill in my community with the Covid situation. MoreBeer came to the rescue with this terrific kit which fits the bill for summer satisfaction. The recipe is hop heavy, so be prepared with a hop bag, hop rocket, hop cone tube, etc.

My friends have tried for years to make a good ipa, finally nailed it!
My abv came out at 6.8 and this is a super hoppy beer. I loved everything about brewing this. Imagine having 5 gallons of a crisp hoppy full bodied ipa on draft!

Ugly Fish IPA
This came out great. I missed the OG by a little but everything else came out great in the process. The final product tastes delicious. I added the secondary hopes in about 4-5 days before bottling. This you could adjust depending on how much hop you want in the taste. Mine has a good hop taste but not overwhelming. Will make again.

Warning: I've purchased this kit a few times, finally figured out it has too many bittering hops.. Ibu's 101. Went to the end of the style guide, & fell off. Remove 2oz of your choice, for me simcoe cinntinial. Still give this kit 5 stars..

Makes an excellent, strong IPA
With the large volume of base malt, you'll get an OG of over 1.070, unless your efficiency is quite low. You can actually get up to 8% ABV, putting it into the IIPA category (although the color is too light to technically meet that definition). And with all those hops additions, you'll get a very tasty beer!

Great Beer with a Bunch of Hops
Finally got around to brewing and kegging after 2 1/2 months. I didn't use all the hops in the kit (saving the leftovers for later) and it still came out very hoppy, and I'm pleased with the results. It's a good deal with all the hops included and I will definitely buy again.

Second time buying this kit but sent pre-milled instead of unmilled malt
First kit was great. Purchased a second time but kit came in with both unmilled (3-1 lb. bags 2-row) and pre-milled (1-10 lb. bag 2-row). Specialty malts are always pre-milled. I always order unmilled malts. I brew with a Grainfather RIMS System and the pre-milled malt was way to fine and clogged up my system (even with rice hulls added to the mash). Needless to say I had a less than fun experience with this brew session. Also my gravities were off on the low side compared to my first brew with this kit. I'm sure this brew will be OK, just a mess getting it into the fermenter.
