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.

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.

Notes. Tap. Hazy brown/orange color with a small white head. Not the prettiest looking beer (castleton ftw!). Nose is grassy and wheatlike. Not to impressed with that. Sweet and floral taste. Caramel and a perfume like taste lead to a slightly bitter finish. Medium bodied and fairly sticky. Iím thinking this one may have been past itís prime.

Had this random brew at Tria Rittenhouse in Philly. Pours a light amber with a tall light tan head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma of freshly baked biscuits. Flavios of toasted malt, nuts and mildly bitter hops. Light but not thin texture and a medium long finish with a bit of vanilla. Glad I tried it. Who knew they did craft brews in Kansas?

Serving glass: Poured from can into Nonic Imperial Pint. Appearance: Cloudy, dark orange with foamy off-white head that lasts awhile and leaves light lacing. Aroma: Citrus and loads of caramel and toasted malts. Taste: Very malty caramel backbone accented by toasted malts and a very light tea-like characteristic. Strong citrusy American hops combat the malts, with a piney, spicy and bitter finish. Overall, malty but very bitter. Palate: Moderate carbonation, creamy and smooth medium to full body, dry finish. Overall: Never had a Double ESB before. It is quite good, but primarily seems to be a malt-focused IPA. Almost a DIPA, but not quite. Overall, fairly impressive.

As many Tallgrass IPAís as I have had and enjoyed, I canít believe I am just now getting around to the Oasis. Poured from large can, beautiful red/orange color with a healthy and frothy head. Smells wonderful. Taste matches the appearance and aroma. Smooth but with bite, light but with heft. A touch of soapy aftertaste unfortunately, but I will pick more up as the weather cools and football season gets underway.

Cant believe that i havent rated this. Fuckin Badass Beer. About as much beer you can have in a beer. so much stuff in this beer. not a diverse amount of stuff, but tons of the most important stuff. malt and hops. try this beer whenever you can, it is a real treat it you like big beer. itís definitely a double esb in every way. this would be soooo good barrel aged. they have to know. that. itís quite obvious that this is just a low alcohol barley wine really. nutty roast with pine hops. this beer is so american. i love it

Good. The nose is floral and earthy hops with a nice bready caramel background. Copper red with an off white cap. Bitter in the earthy floral predominance. Medium plus bodied with a bitter finish and notes of warmth.

Can pours amber with tan head. Aromas are malt, and pine. Taste is more IPA than ESB, but tasty. Malty like an ESB, but aggressively hopped as an IPA. Notes of fruity malt and piney hops. Overall a decent brew.

Cloudy coppery pour. A lot of hops but still a robust brew. Wonderful. Bitter. Well balanced.
