Ugly Fish IPA - All Grain Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)
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?

BEST ANSWER: I’m pretty sure all kits come with pellets unless otherwise noted. You could call the customer service number for clarification.

Great Kit
Even as a rookie this kit was fairly self explanatory and made for a great brew.

Pretty tasty.
Mine doesn't quite taste like the original, but still good. Might purchase again when I'm in the mood to brew something hoppy.

WOW Amazing beer
Sculpin is my favorite IPA, when i saw this kit i had to try it out. Made a 15 gallon batch, mashed @ 160 and temp stayed constant. Ended up with a little too much in the kettle so did a 90 minute boil. OG was .068 used yeast starter with WLP001, after two weeks final gravity was .004 for a nice 8.3%. 2 glasses and your done for the night. My neighbor does not like IPA's, yet he always came over and asked for another glass. In south central Texas majority of the folks like lagers like shiner, everyone who tried this beer loved it so much they now willing to give IPA's a try. While this was stronger than normal the taste was awesome, we did a side by side comparison and we couldn't tell them apart. Great Job on this Kit MooreBeer. Defiantly adding this to our rotation.

Excellent hoppy IPA
Being that there was no review on this yet, I felt I had to chime in. This beer is amazing!!!! Just like anything else brewing, these kits are only as good and the steps taken to brew them. I used WLP051 starter and fermented at 65DF for 3 days, then over the next week I allowed the temp to gradually reach 70. Day 10 I added the dryhops, but only left them in for 3 days then cold crashed. One other thing I did was my flameout hops I actually did a 20 minute hop stand. I eventually kegged this beer. Man O' Man...... killer hops and perfect grain bill to go along with it. There is no way I won't have this on tap at all times.
