COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian-style IPA brewed with cascade hops, coriander, and cardamom

Amidst our desert of mostly hop-barren beers, you’ve finally found Night Shift’s Oasis. Our first IPA to hit bottles, Oasis features citrusy Cascade hops that dance and mingle with the zesty, Arabian spices of coriander and cardamom. A fruity Belgian yeast strain unites the variety of flavors into a crisp, bright, truly satisfying ale.

MaBeer1972 (1269) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle from Julios. Pours out a hazy light orange color. Totally cloudy with the second pour. Aroma of light citrus-fruit and yeasty spice. Flavor is much more like a Saison than an IPA. Light and citrusy with a hint of spice. Classic Belgian yeast profile. Finishes bready and fruity with a slight bit of spicy bitterness. Definately NOT an IPA.

Sammy (8414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
A saison and an IPA. More IPA bitterness at the beginning and then more balanced as it warms. Orange hop flavour, lots of coriander. Cardamon brightens the flavour, taking the place of pepper in a typical saison. Very drinkable, though the bomber had to be shared. cloudy orange with a ton of soapy foam in each pour, regardless of angle. Thanks for sharing, Americo.

Tasting at Bruce’ s pad. Thanks to Leighton for this tasty number. Hazy gold beer with a good off white head. Palate is soft and airy. Really nice hops here, and what good be coriander fruits - lime sherbet and floral flavours with lesser citrus, pine, skunk and a touch of lemon. The mild cardamon sets things off nicely. Light dry finish. Lovely citric flavours.

Very Belgian tasting IPA with lots of clove notes. Hops are light citrus and grassy herbalness. Its pretty good but could use some more juicy hops to brighten this up.

maneliquor (3009) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle cheers to Leighton. A wealth of information on this label. Pours straw yellow with a big, billowing white head leaving very clingy lacing. Nose is full of heavy tangy citric fruits - lemon juice, lime peel, pepper. Bretty funk comes through with great balance. A hint of dough. Taste is a citric fruit punch - orange, lime peel, quite zesty, pepper, touch of spice - namely coriander. Funky stuff. A good drop

Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - I got this one from Julio’s. Pours lightly hazy gold with a large, frothy white head. The nose has nice brett funk, some secondary notes of lemon and tangerine, light sweet flavor with dry, brett funk, mango, melon, grapefruit, straw. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Dry finish, funky and somewhat poopy with bitter citrus rind, mild alcohol warmth, sweet lemon and mandarin orange. Lovely beer.

ReggieDunlap (3030) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a huge white head...huge head...cork exploded. Aroma has notable spices...cardamom...smells like sage. Flavor is very rindy and grassy with very evident spices...solid bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and very lively...finish is dry and grapefruity and rindy with faint lingering spice.

Bottle shared by J at rb track day. Poured a dirty cloudy pale straw body with a huge foamy off white head. Aroma of cardamom, spiced fruit, yeast, lavender. Palate was okay with a medium to fuller body with average carbonation. Flavor was like the aroma and just over spiced with lots of cardamom. Not really into this one.
