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.

This is my favorite high IBU+ high alcohol beer. The cleanest 7%+ I have have experienced. I always buy the mix pack to get the Oasis with Tallgrassís other beers for a better value. The aroma is an inviting clean spruce, and the palate full with an abrupt but bitter finish. I would give a perfect 5 over all but I have not drank every beer and must leave room for the best beer in the world.

Cloudy amber colored pour. Giant white head. Tons of lacing. Aroma of malt with some hops dancing around in the background. Some grain. Nice malty flavor with some citrus and hops. Very tasty. Sweet background of malt in the finish. Very good beer. Mmmmm.

wxman (1426) - OíFallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2013
From can at Old Chicago in Omaha. Pours a clear copper with a full antique lace head. Mild citrus and bread aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, biscuits and too much hop bitterness which dominates the malt excessively.

Ericular (612) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Pours a dense cloudy orange with medium off-white head and decent lacing. Aroma is earthy and malty. Taste has a rich malt flavor that balances the large earthy bitterness. Aroma in the front and aftertaste in the back are more enjoyable than the flavorful middle. All-in-all, itís not bad.

Rooftop patio in Des Moines. Works, dark amber color. Very hoppy and works great on a warm day in a cold mug. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scipio (699) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Pours a deep amber with a large, clean and neat looking white head that settles nicely. The aroma has grassy hops, caramel, and some breadiness. Taste is a blend of malts and fruits. Malt is bready with some caramel notes. The fruitiness that this one contains seems to be strawberry and apple. There is a healthy amount of pine that is noticed throughout drinking. Aftertaste is that pine and fruit. Medium bodied, with a thick texture, with an above average amount of carbonation. Maybe not my favorite among this style, but its easy to enjoy.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 28, 2013
A - Pours a hazy dark amber with a big off-white head. Good retention and nice 3D lacing. S - Big caramel/toffee malt, rich and bready, some oranges, peaches, some leafy and spicy hops. T - Toffee malt, very bready and yeasty. Has a toasty graininess as well. Good amounts of sweet ruby red grapefruit that transforms into a full on grapefruit bitterness and grows stronger and spicier through the finish. The malt a is dense and carries through as well. M - Moderate lush carbonation, dense, medium to full body, dry finish from the hops. Good stuff here. Itís more of a hefty ESB rather than a DIPA. Itís great to drink at room temp. Very malty and yeasty. Itís a different take on either style. Recommended. Serving type: can 01-27-2012

Solid hops nose. Flavor has citrus, candi sugar and biscuit going on. Huge hop punch early on followed by strong sweet malt. Really liked it
