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.

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.

Solid hops nose. Flavor has citrus, candi sugar and biscuit going on. Huge hop punch early on followed by strong sweet malt. Really liked it

First had at the St. Paul Highland Fest beer dabbler. Have since had in cans from local stores. Deep, malty aroma with notes of caramel and citrus. Deep amber color with a lacy, yet thick head. Palate starts out very smooth and malty, and finishes with a nice bitter hoppiness. Very nice offering. I need to try the Tallgrass IPA and stout.

TheGB (578) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2011
Pours a nice amber with a thick 3/4" head. Nice hop aroma, with a nice balance of grassy and floral hops. Medium bodied with a nice tasty balance and smooth palate.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Pours a hazy reddish-orange color. Moderate tan head with good retention and lacing. Aroma is orange and pine. Flavor is a nice mix of bready malt, citrus and pine and grassy hops. Medium moutfheel and good amount of hop bitterness in aftertaste. Slightly dry finish. Very nice.

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. Itís medium bodied with an almost chewy thickness to it, but itís smooth and creamy thanks to the lack of carbonation. Overall, itís an excellent IPA that any fan of the style should check out.

berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - APR 15, 2012
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.

keith0718 (434) - Kansas, USA - MAY 29, 2010
A nice piney nose. Tastes like a strong/imperial IPA. Big, but not too malty like most imperial IPAs I find.

jezmez68 (404) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - APR 23, 2011
One of the best IPAs Iíve had in a while. A good level of ABV at 7.2%, and a nice color - darker like an ESB. Nice malty backbone with lots of caramel, and the hops are citrusy and balance it out nicely.
