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.

Can from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy copper amber with a yellow/white head. Lots of hop in the aroma. Med body/mild carb. Flavor is a pretty strong dose of mild roast caramel with a large amount of hop. Floral/resin/citrus. The bitter really shows up strong in the finish. Good brew.

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2011
crunchy toasty malt (crackers, light caramel, pleasant nuttiness) with bold hop nose (earthy, nutty, raw). a bit syrupy and rough but those things seem to balance out each other and keep this one in line. alcohol isnít noticeable, malt is toasty and firm and the hops are earthy.
