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.

Tallboy can. Thanks to Ratman for this one. Pours an amber orange with a small head. Malty nose with tons of hops and grapefruit. Nice clean flavors and resiny finish. Loads of taste, My first beer from Kansas and it is a winner. Very refreshing ..

changeup45 (1717) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Can from unclemike. This pours a dark amber-brown color with a good thick head that quickly settles down to a thin layer. Citrusy hop aroma with grass, herbs, as well as pine. The flavors are both malty and hoppy showing pretty good substance. Caramel malt that has a bit of a toasty or grainy element to it. This is, however, somewhat thin upfront until the citrusy hops take over into a long-lasting bitter finish. Nuts and herbal notes mix in with a little tea-like quality. Far more bitter than expected based on the style. I can definitely see this as a ESB/IPA type of hybrid. The body is thick yet it goes down rather easily. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I must say this is a pretty good beer.

Pours a lovely hazy brown/orange. Almost pink in certain light. Nice pub ale with a bitter touch and a nice alcohol kick to it.

nuplastikk (4396) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 24, 2010
16oz can. Thick, orange-brown, with a creamy off white/beige head. Nice floral hop aroma. Thick and full bodied, with a toasty sweet malty taste and a solid hop backbone. A little mellow on the carbonation, which helps give it an English feel I suppose. The hops and ABV let you know this is all American, with a resiny thick finish. Well done, enjoyable beer.

Can from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy copper amber with a yellow/white head. Lots of hop in the aroma. Med body/mild carb. Flavor is a pretty strong dose of mild roast caramel with a large amount of hop. Floral/resin/citrus. The bitter really shows up strong in the finish. Good brew.

(16oz can thanks to Mora2000) clear rich amber, few khaki bubbles. Nose of melon, light funk, rye, and bready. Taste of bitter pine, unsweet grain, grapefruit rind oils. Soft carbonation with a spicy rye linger.
