What kind of LPS is this

I bought this coral from my LFS, but their reef guy was not there so no one could tell me. I think it's a brown torch coral. Thanks guys! Click image for larger version

It's a torch but I doubt it's brown. It will probably be a different color once it colors back up.

It stayed brown for as long as I had it. It lived for ten yrs.

Had this in my tank for about 3 weeks now and I am not sure the type of hammer it is. Any ideas?
