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.

Tallboy can. Thanks to Ratman for this one. Pours an amber orange with a small head. Malty nose with tons of hops and grapefruit. Nice clean flavors and resiny finish. Loads of taste, My first beer from Kansas and it is a winner. Very refreshing ..

A little bigger than their IPA in every regard. A little darker, a little cloudier, a little stronger, a few more off flavors - smokey phenolics in addition to the butterscotch diacetyl. Still missing the hop aroma. In spite of this, it’s not a bad beer. Some nice grapefruit and sweet malt flavors, dry bitter finish. Very one-dimensional. I’d drink it again, if someone else is buying.

Bottle. Pours a hazy deep copper color. Nice 2 finger tanish head leaves lacing all the way down! Aroma is upfront caramel toffee malt. Taste is malty, resin-like hoppiness, and bitter grapefruit rind. A "Big" hoppy beer with a strong malt presence makes this a winner. My only wish; the hop characteristics were more pronounced in this one. I like malt too. but I like hops more!

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Pours a nice murky amber with a healthy dose of off white head that laces wonderfully. Loads of piney resinous hop presence, mixed with some mango/kiwi (?). The hops are supported by a caramely sweet bread. The taste is practically a mirror of the nose. The bitterness, though, is a bit more aggressive than I would have guessed plus a touch of burnt toast and heavy grain. This is usually the beer that I recommend to people that are looking for a Furious type experience - this analysis has me second guessing myself though. Regardless, this stuff is tasty.

Dark orange-amber color with some white head. Aroma of citrus and bitter malts. Flavor is more bitter malt and citrus rind. Best ESB I can recall... that being said, I still have no reason to drink it again. Maybe the dry hopping is what makes it a bit better to me...?

Rooftop patio in Des Moines. Works, dark amber color. Very hoppy and works great on a warm day in a cold mug. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The Oasis has a brown amber color with a substantial(but not overwhelming) head. The aroma is of strong hops, unfortunately a little soapy. Fortunately, this is not present when sipping. The taste of the beer is rather bitter, but otherwise very balanced. The beer has a good, thick body to it as well. Overall, definitely an interesting beer to try, one that I wouldn’t have expected from the can it came in!

16oz can. Pours a clean copper with almost no head in a pint glass. Floral aroma of dry hopped citrus, grapefruit, pine, and some wood. Pleasant flavor, mouth feel, and hop profile very reminiscent of Surly Furious. Dry,citrus, and hoppy profile lead into a sweet caramel malt base that is well balanced. A somewhat long, bitter finish follows. A good way to describe this beer would be the shasta equivalent to coke. AKA the Furious knockoff. Solid.

Can to glass. Hazy orange/amber pour with nice off white head. Notes of grapefruity citrus on the nose as well as a bit of pine. Very bitter taste and long bitter finish. One of my go to beers.

16oz can. Pours very hazy orange-brown with large off-white head. Surprised by the amount of sediment in the glass. Aroma of sharp piney hops with a slight malt background. Taste of bitter floral hops with lingering bitterness. There is a toasty, caramel, bready malt backing but it could be amped up a bit to compete with the pine flavors. With the relatively high alcohol for the style and the big hop bitterness its still fairly easy to drink. Matched pretty well with some spicy Chinese food.
