COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oasis is a Double ESB/IPAish beer that came about from playing around with one of Jeff’s favorite homebrew recipes. Here at Tallgrass we love malt and we love hops, and this beer has both of them in record quantities; well, at least records for our baby brewery. At a hefty 7.2% ABV and 93 IBU, Oasis is a big beer that has to be priced a bit higher than our regular line of beers. We think that once you taste the over-the-top hops and surprisingly sturdy malt backbone you will realize why it’s worth it. Definitely not a fruit-extract seasonal shandy, this beer is meant to be enjoyed on the back porch, the front porch, or even on the stoop. What’s a stoop? Well, it’s a good place to drink beer, is what it is.

can. nice blend of malt and hops - malt hits first. not a lot of citrus but plenty of pine and resin. reasonably well integrated alcohol makes for a refreshing taste but an enjoyably hearty mouthfeel. nothing extraordinary but a solid all rounder. would definitely pick up if I ever saw it again.

Han from a can at Orcutt's place. Pours a clear amber with a nice head. Lots of maltiness and some citrus. A very nice medium bodied beer. Nice.

Can sampled at a tasting. From notes. Citrus with bread and caramel. Pretty good, but nothing I would seek out again.

chickenflea (347) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2013
16oz. can: Poured a brilliant clear amber with tall pillowy head. Sparkling. A beautiful beer. Aroma of multi-grain malt, orange juice and bread and coriander. Sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Sweetness gradually gives way to an earthy bitterness (pine mostly). Bitterness really digs in on the finish with mountainous floral qualities. Medium body that seems lighter than it is because of the high carbonation. A delight to the tongue. An interesting beer. More similar to an English IPA than an ESB. A little less raucous hops might be closer to the imperial ESB label. I liked it though.

The beer has a decent copper color to it with a decent off white head and good lacing on the glass. The smell is mild with floral notes, grassy, hoppy, and malty finish to it. The taste comes off with malt and caramel than moves into bitter, not hoppy just bitter. The mouthfeel leaves you with a resin taste and somewhat creamy. Overall, this beer is okay, not a DIPA as advertised bcause it has some qualities of an ESB.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Nice red pour with a big forthy off-white head. Sweet caramel malt. Not much hop character which is really surprising. Maybe some slight spicy floarl notes, but mostly just a bland caramel bomb.

Nero55 (772) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Can. Cloudy copper with a large off white head. Strong aroma of earthy and spicy hops. Medium body with earthy hop bitterness upfront, some malt sweetness, and a dry finish.

Beergeek23322 (2480) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2013
September 2011. From can. Amber color with a white head. Malty, fruity aromas with some citrus. Caramel flavors, a bit too sweet, but hops on the finish.

nealblind (916) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Hazy brown pour big head good retention. Aroma of hops and brown bread. Tastes so hoppy it tingles. Flavor of grass, medicinal, peach, caramel. heavy on the palate, but the beer matches in in heavy flavor. Booze is also well integrated. Impressively drinkable for a strong flavored beer made stronger.
