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.
what yeast do you use for ugly fish IPA?
Hector Adame on Apr 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can use multiple yeasts. Something that will finish dry and clean is best. Try these below and make sure to use two packs for best results.

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.

While not exact to the original it is delicious in it's own right. This is everything an IPA should be, hoppy but balanced. Pitched Wyeast 1056 to 2L starter and let it work it's magic. I will be making this rascal again.
