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.

On tap at TapWerks OKC. Pours a clear copper with a small creamy white head with sticky lacing. The aroma is a floral hops and grapefruit. Thin mouthfeel with a hoppy bite and nice bitter finish. Hides the alcohol well making it easy to drink, a very good ESB from Tallgrass.

Loved the deep copper color and high protein head. Pint can, but that didnít bother me at all. Rich malty flavor and nice carbonated tingle. Ií. not sure about the aroma, Iíve heard ígrassyí and íflat.í Flavor is a wonderful full balance of caramel, mellow bitter and a tiny hint of citrus. I love this beer.

Gregis (1279) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Pours iced tea brown with a lasting, pitted, khaki head that leaves a web of lace upon the glass.Toasted malt with piny and citric hops along with some other lighter assorted fruit notes (a little passion fruit and a whisper of pineapple). Medium-bodied and slick with a tight, bitter and somewhat drying finish. This is not your typical ESB. It has the expected toasty malt-forward front, but that lasts for just an instant before you are smacked by the piny, grassy and slightly fruity assault of hop notes. While the nose doesnít mimic the flavor profile, both are enjoyable. This is an IPA drinkerís kind of ESB. If youíre wanting a Fullers-style ESB look elsewhere, but if you are a hop head, you will likely enjoy this tasty hybrid.

Notes. Tap. Hazy brown/orange color with a small white head. Not the prettiest looking beer (castleton ftw!). Nose is grassy and wheatlike. Not to impressed with that. Sweet and floral taste. Caramel and a perfume like taste lead to a slightly bitter finish. Medium bodied and fairly sticky. Iím thinking this one may have been past itís prime.

GLBN IPA Challenge 2011, sample. copper colored pour, notes of tea, british hops, light tabacco, sweet toffee maltiness, orange marmalade. Decent ESB, Average IPA

Beaver (1219) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2011
16oz can. Pours a reddish amber with a medium creamy white head.

The aroma is a bit strange - fruity resiny hops and some weird off note.

The flavor is a bit strange as well. Thereís some woody caramel notes with a decent amount of hop bitterness - fruity, resiny, a little minty and almost sour. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, itís a bit strange to me. Maybe itís the mix of ESB with big American hops. The blend of caramel, wood, fruits and some almost sour notes just didnít work for me.
