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.

Deccent mid-range ipa. Good hop presence but a bit sweet. Some mineral qualities and quite thick. Drinkable and not without complexity but forgetable.

Poured from a can to a pint/shaker glass. Appearance: Dark amber/orange but hazy in color. Small head but may be due to the pour. Light head lacing and I can lightly see carbonation bubbling up through the haze. Very good looking ESB/IPA. They state it's an imperial ESB almost an IPA. Good mix between the two. Taste: Very hop forward followed by a malty finish. It isn't like and Imperial IPA in that it doesn't have much of a hop bite aftertaste. Very enjoyable. Verdict: I was very impressed overall. It fed my hop head needs while giving me the malty finish as well. I will definitely buy again and keep it on hand. Tallgrass has a couple beers I've been impressed with. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Firehouse, served in Tulip. Poured amber, nice head and lacing. Nose and flavor was citrus and pine, big hop bite and finish. Nicely balanced and a real good IPA.

pkbites (673) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Pour is gorgeous! Tan/brown with tan head. Nose is weak. Caramel and sugar smacks, but weakly so! Pine and floral hops are good, but a bit much. The finish is so long it’s possibly eternal. I ate a tin of sardines after drinking this and the aftertaste was still there!

Can shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt! A: Hazy, light orange. The head is somewhat small and fades quickly, leaving a little lacing behind. S: Alcohol, pine, hops. T: An OK beer, with the hops a bit more subdued and the alcohol more present than I would prefer. M: Medium body with a hop and alcohol finish. In spite of this, the beer is quite smooth on the palate. D: Decent stuff and worth a try, though I wouldn’t seek it out. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 10-31-2010

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Cans from Capone’s and Blue Dog. Pours copper with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is grainy caramel malt, brown sugar, hops. Tastes of big caramelly malt, hoppy, with some florals. Comes across the palate like an imperial amber.

Lukaduke (1992) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Pours a hazy burnt sienna color with a nice three finger mocha head. Aromas are citrus, caramel malts and touches of earthy spice. On the palate its pleasant grapefruit, bitter citrus, earthy spice and plenty of malts to hold this one up to other DIPA’s. Which is what Id say this ranks in as. Bold.

Tap. Pours a dark copper with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is sweet malt and citrus hops. Flavor is malty with yeast, earth, citrus, esters, and grassy hops with solid hop bitterness and nice balance. Medium body with good carbonation. Good brew.
