2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 itís possibly eternal. I ate a tin of sardines after drinking this and the aftertaste was still there!

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

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.

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.

very hoppy, citrus aroma.
very nice, long lasting white head.
extremely hoppy taste, bitter. Something dry, canít figure it out, doesnít taste too malty, but may very well be.
Fairly smooth finish for how hoppy it initially is.

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.

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.
