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.

From can. Slight caramel aroma with some EKG like aroma and taste. Lite laces on the glass. Imperial ESB? Try it.

Beautiful artwork. I wasn’t sure what to expect. Hoppy resin, almost bready aroma. Intense hoppiness then it mellowed. Stilled ended as a big hop bomb. But just enough malts to make me happy and wanting more. Great Job

Can at sampling session. From notes (Oct. 11, 2011). Some light chocolate, caramel, earthy aroma. Pretty orangeish color. More caramel and light fruit in initial; nice dirty hoppiness in mid. Quite drinkable. An ESB with a bit of a punch.

EtTuCthulhu (1124) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JAN 20, 2013
The aroma of this beer is hops and roasted malts, and the appearance of the beer is orangeish brown with a frothy white and prominent head. This beer is quite bitter when it first hits the tongue, but it finishes abruptly and significantly less bitter than it starts. It also has a medium-full body, a creamy texture, and flat carbonation.

We had this beer at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in Biloxi, MS. A really different beer. Caramel color, hoppy taste. Good. We’re big fans for the artwork too.

Exceptional beverage with a unique blend of hops and malt, unlike any I’ve had. Nice caramel color, uniform thick head. Tallgrass gets high marks for a complete, but not overbearing hop aroma and a biscuity finish. One of my new favorites.

Barreras (1047) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours a copper color with a malt aroma. It has a floral hoppy aroma and taste as well. A very dry tasting beer that has a strong bitter aftertaste. Beer was in a tall can which gave it a slight metallic taste.

backdaft (227) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep copper color. Nice 2 finger tanish head leaves lacing all the way down! Aroma is upfront caramel toffee malt. Taste is malty, resin-like hoppiness, and bitter grapefruit rind. A "Big" hoppy beer with a strong malt presence makes this a winner. My only wish; the hop characteristics were more pronounced in this one. I like malt too. but I like hops more!

jrodooo5 (1063) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Pours a merky gold with a nice tan head that leaves significant lacing. The aroma is a nice blend of malt & hop. The taste is a very good match to the smell. It’s very clean & drinkable at the remarkable 94 iBU & 7.2%. The hop presence is there but the malt balances it beautifully so it’s not hops galore. Impressive!

Can from a very generous trader. Pours a reddish amber with an off white head. Some lacing. Nose and taste of caramel, burnt malt, resin/pine and dried citrus. Finishes dried citrus and burnt malt. Medium body.
