COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oasis is a Double ESB/IPAish beer that came about from playing around with one of Jeffís 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 itís 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. Whatís a stoop? Well, itís a good place to drink beer, is what it is.

By taste, hard to tell if it an IPA or an ESB. Not a great example of either. Drinkabe but nothing great going on here. There is a lingering bitterness which I do not like. Hard to define what is going on with this one. Are there any real good beers from west of the big river to the big mountains?

This poured a dark orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of fruity citrusy hops and toasted malts. Flavor was bright bold citrus, alot more hoppy than i was expecting with a decent biscuty malt backbone. Quality stuff.

From a can poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Bitter hoppy flavor with a lingering finish.

The Oasis has a brown amber color with a substantial(but not overwhelming) head. The aroma is of strong hops, unfortunately a little soapy. Fortunately, this is not present when sipping. The taste of the beer is rather bitter, but otherwise very balanced. The beer has a good, thick body to it as well. Overall, definitely an interesting beer to try, one that I wouldnít have expected from the can it came in!

TheGB (513) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2011
Pours a nice amber with a thick 3/4" head. Nice hop aroma, with a nice balance of grassy and floral hops. Medium bodied with a nice tasty balance and smooth palate.

One of the best IPAs Iíve had in a while. A good level of ABV at 7.2%, and a nice color - darker like an ESB. Nice malty backbone with lots of caramel, and the hops are citrusy and balance it out nicely.

As many Tallgrass IPAís as I have had and enjoyed, I canít believe I am just now getting around to the Oasis. Poured from large can, beautiful red/orange color with a healthy and frothy head. Smells wonderful. Taste matches the appearance and aroma. Smooth but with bite, light but with heft. A touch of soapy aftertaste unfortunately, but I will pick more up as the weather cools and football season gets underway.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2011
Serving: 16 oz. can at Fireworks. It pours a nice amber color with a large, pillowy, light tan head. Great head retention. The nose is malty with notes of toast and biscuit. The flavor is slightly bitter with a nice malt backbone and some caramel. Perhaps a bit of soapy on the back end. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a lingering finish. A very solid ESB.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2011
16 oz can. Pours a clear dark copper body with a nice frothy one inch beige head that had decent retention. The nose is about half right, the hops are fairly decent: English, leafy, pretty fresh. The malt is a bit off though, itís too sweet, too heavily dependent on crystal malt. Not very ESB like at all. The flavor is much the same. The hops fit the bill pretty well, but when it comes to the malt itís just a little too Americanized. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. The iced tea/ brown sugar like sweetness lingers a bit too long, outlasting the hops by far. It wasnít a real chore to drink a whole can of this, but not something Iíd buy again.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2011
Hazy copper with a medium beige rocky top, slowly fading. Aroma of heavy grains and mild resinous and grassy hops. Taste of caramel, mild fruit, citrus and lightly toasted malt. Mild bitter and fruity finish.
