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.

Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. Hazy copper color, two fingers of tight head, lots of lacing. Big citrus smell. Grapefruit and a sharp lemon are the biggest ones. Aggressive hops from the beginning. Tough to taste anything else, but in the middle there is a little honey flavor... probably the only malt bit that came through. Lasting bitterness. Lots of bubbles and medium body. Solid Double IPA. Hits early and big; perfect fit and fun to drink.

drpimento (2152) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2012
Pretty good beer. Served at a good temperature with a nice light tan with golden highlights, foamy head that slowly settles and lots of lace. Color is a very slightly hazy orange honey amber. Aroma is hops, dry deciduous twigs, used leather, malt, toffee, hint of butterscothch. Flavor’s much like nose and has fairly decent balance for this style of beer which is hop on top (:-}) bitter, then a little malt sweet and carbonic tang to round out. Body is good with bitterness dominating the full mouth and good carbonation. Finish is like flavor, long, and leaves me able to have a couple more.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2013 16 oz can. Pours dark orange with a nice head. Smells like honey and citrus. Very sweet for a DIPA with some citrus and a nice hoppy bitterness at the end. Very good beer.

dresden (779) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
Ruby colored with a sticky foamy head. Pine aroma, some citrus. Good amount of hops here. Lots of pine, grapefruit and biscuit and caramel malt. Well balanced. Thick beer with harsh bitterness. Pretty decent.

kdm1984 (624) - Missouri, USA - APR 4, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 Predominantly piney, though not as piney as Ranger - malt makes it a bit easier to chug down even as the high IBUs are quite conspicuous in flavor. Like the can idea - makes it easier to get a sip, though it’s harder to get a whiff unless fully poured.

Cloudy Brown/Orange color with a hefty sized head and boatloads of lacing left behind. The flavors consist of Piney/Citrus/Floral Hops, bready-biscuits and some sweet caramel. This is also a very malty beer, even by IPA standards. It’s medium bodied with an almost chewy thickness to it, but it’s smooth and creamy thanks to the lack of carbonation. Overall, it’s an excellent IPA that any fan of the style should check out.

Can @ yespr. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty hoppy aroma with weak piney hints. Fruity malty dry hoppy bitter flavor with weak grapefruit hints. Has a fruity hoppy bitter weak piney finish.

Can - 12 112 best by date. Pours hazy orangish-brown with a huge foamy off-white head. Big butterscotch and toffee malt on the nose, light herbal hopping, and tons of sweet breadiness. Same sweetness in the taste--big bready notes, toffee, and a big bitter grassy hoppiness on the finish. Pretty big body, fluffy carbonation, and a belly-warming alcohol burn. Overall it’s too heavy, sweet, and boozy for me, and the bitter hop profile doesn’t make it the smoothest beer around. I’d have to really be in the mood for this to drink it again.
