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.

(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.

16 oz. can from Root Cellar. Pours a clear deep amber/copper color with a medium sized creamy ivory head. The aroma has grass, some citrus and resiny hops and a touch of caramel malt. The flavor is toasted bread with hints of caramel, light citrus, grass, with decent bitterness to the finish. Medium bodied. This is a drinkable option with a slight bump for the can. Golf season is here and you canít have too many options in cans.

Sampled via 16-oz can during GTMW 2010 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear amber colored brew with a creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates to a white ring and spotty lacing. Aroma of multi-grain malt, some light grapefruit zest, a hint of chocolate and some sharp spice. Taste is medium bodied, some dry multi-grain malt, grassy and citrus hops and a touch of lemon. Finish is semi-dry, grassy hop finish with a lingering bitterness.

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!

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2011 New rating, about the same even though the can sat around a while. There were a few chunks, but nothing bothersome. Medium copper colored body with a very light khaki head. The nose is caramel with some notes of bread and peanuts. There is also some black tea. The taste is largely black tea and toffee. The finish is raw potato skins.

Thanks to dougofthefuture for sending this in Blind BIF 5. Served in a Cantillon tulip. Pours a bright copper color with a bit of a reddish hue. Big white head with some spotty lacing and a thin cap throughout. The nose is not good. Really light with a bit of grain. A bit grainy. Smells kind of like an old IPA. Grain tannin. The flavor has loads of grain and a good amount of grain husk. By good, I mean a lot, not that its a little less than great. Astringent. Hard to guess on this right now. Itís tasting more like a bad IPA. Bitterness in the finish with a dry finish. No hop flavor thought. Not a fan. Perhaps a kill shot. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-14-2011

16oz. Can (via Trade from my man phaleslu. THANKS Peter!): Aroma of malt, hops, slight caramel, Earth, and some grain. Poured deep amber/orange in color with a perfect, large, creamy, dense, tan head that diminished a bit but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny, and a few small, particles throughout. Really a beautiful, perfect head. Excellent lacing. Flavor is is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, light caramel, slight pine, Earth, and light resin. Medium body. Sightly tingly, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, hop, light pine, Earth, light resin, slight grain finish is medium sweet, light to medium bitter, and lightly dry. 7.2%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

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.
