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.

Can. The gargantuan head of foam is clearly the predominant characteristic of this pour, burying a burnt-orange beer. A bountiful aroma escapes thru the foam, rich with malt and notes of pine. The flavors are worthy of a roaring campfire, overflowing with bark, pinecone, resin, and light bitterness. (#4123/5/27/2011)

Mora2000 (5930) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2010
This is my first beer from Kansas. The beer pours a hazy red-amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is grassy hops with some toffee and a little bit of chocolate. The flavor is just as good. In addition to a lot of toffee, I get some grassy hops and a dry powdered chocolate flavor. The beer has low bitterness and is very well balanced. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. One of the better ESBs that I have tried.

djd07 (5889) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2011
On tap at TapWerks OKC. Pours a clear copper with a small creamy white head with sticky lacing. The aroma is a floral hops and grapefruit. Thin mouthfeel with a hoppy bite and nice bitter finish. Hides the alcohol well making it easy to drink, a very good ESB from Tallgrass.

(16oz can thanks to Mora2000) clear rich amber, few khaki bubbles. Nose of melon, light funk, rye, and bready. Taste of bitter pine, unsweet grain, grapefruit rind oils. Soft carbonation with a spicy rye linger.

Strykzone (5500) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Tangerine color with a nice tan head. In a 16 oz. can. I found this to be well balanced, if a bit to the malty side. Nice fruit, a nice varied hop profile, and that sweet malt. It makes for a very nice beer.

Interesting that this is called an ESB on the can and an IPA here, because when we were drinking this I commented on what an IPA-ish ESB this is. So, yeah, this is like a full bodied, slightly malty IPA. I liked it. Thanks to theisti for the trade!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5359) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a hazy orange-caramel color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish pine, grapefruit, perfume and undertones of faint caramel and nut. The flavor was bitter and dryish with moderate pine, grapefruit and lemon and light caramel, nut and bread underneath. The finish was long and bitter with lingering pine, grapefruit and perfume. Fairly full bodied. Interesting.

kramer (5357) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2011
16 oz can. Pours a clear dark copper body with a nice frothy one inch beige head that had decent retention. The nose is about half right, the hops are fairly decent: English, leafy, pretty fresh. The malt is a bit off though, itís too sweet, too heavily dependent on crystal malt. Not very ESB like at all. The flavor is much the same. The hops fit the bill pretty well, but when it comes to the malt itís just a little too Americanized. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. The iced tea/ brown sugar like sweetness lingers a bit too long, outlasting the hops by far. It wasnít a real chore to drink a whole can of this, but not something Iíd buy again.
