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.

Sampled at the 7th Annual Parkville Microbrew Festival on April 24th, 2010. Pours amber with a white head. This seems more like an IPA than an ESB. This is very drinkable with a good hop profile. I heard that this is replacing the Wheat as a rotating seasonal.

A nice piney nose. Tastes like a strong/imperial IPA. Big, but not too malty like most imperial IPAs I find.

A go between of their IPA and Ale. Sort of shallow in taste, typical metallic finish, a trademark of tallgrass beer. Not worth the effort. Also, heard the few batches available were shipped outside Tallgrass hometown. Thanks Tallgrass.

From an unlabeled bottle from the source.
Rather malty and hoppy in the nose. Poured a dark, clear red with a decent sized foamy head. Had flavors of a modern American Red ale or Pale Ale, with citrus like hops and sticky sugary malts. Thicker than any other bottled Tallgrass beer to date. I was really surprised to learn its an ESB and not an west coast style Red Ale.
