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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a can to a pint/shaker glass.
Appearance: Dark amber/orange but hazy in color. Small head but may be due to the pour. Light head lacing and I can lightly see carbonation bubbling up through the haze. Very good looking ESB/IPA. They state it's an imperial ESB almost an IPA. Good mix between the two.
Taste: Very hop forward followed by a malty finish. It isn't like and Imperial IPA in that it doesn't have much of a hop bite aftertaste. Very enjoyable.
Verdict: I was very impressed overall. It fed my hop head needs while giving me the malty finish as well. I will definitely buy again and keep it on hand. Tallgrass has a couple beers I've been impressed with.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Loved the deep copper color and high protein head. Pint can, but that didn’t bother me at all. Rich malty flavor and nice carbonated tingle. I’. not sure about the aroma, I’ve heard ’grassy’ and ’flat.’ Flavor is a wonderful full balance of caramel, mellow bitter and a tiny hint of citrus. I love this beer.

This is my favorite high IBU+ high alcohol beer. The cleanest 7%+ I have have experienced. I always buy the mix pack to get the Oasis with Tallgrass’s other beers for a better value. The aroma is an inviting clean spruce, and the palate full with an abrupt but bitter finish. I would give a perfect 5 over all but I have not drank every beer and must leave room for the best beer in the world.

This beer keeps getting better the more I drink it. I have enjoyed 2 batches of this, and it’s great.
