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.

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 Tallgrassís 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.

Stine (1574) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Transparent, amber resin pour; steadfast foam. Iced tea, caramel malt, honey biscuit, orange candy aroma. Needles and grapefruit seem subdued within the washy malt notes, but the balance of all these highly ordinary components is generally quite careful. Itís interesting, because it seems that this would be highly unpleasant if one or more of these elements was turned up or down even slightly.

This peculiarity is also apparent in what is mostly an outdated flavor. Here, the resin and floral qualities are more centered, while the malt sweetness is more subtle. There is a wealth of predictable familiarity, in aerosol-like bitterness, iced tea astringency, and citrus oil and pith. But the skilled, even handedness of this brewery is the most prevalent sensation.

The palate offers soft carbonation and some good weight without ever being sticky or syrupy. The finish is clean with lingering, dry resin. The present is full of forward thinking, detailed and delicate hop presentations in this style; this example seems to state that given this, there is still a place for this type of brash, overdone persona.

Bottle; dark amber color with a big frothy head. Aroma of must, orange, earth, spice and caramel. Good flavor; aggressively earthy, mostly dry. Ok breadiness.

Pours a deep amber color with off-white head. Pine, citrus, and some floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a pleasing bitterness on the palate.

From can. Pours dark red with a fair bit of tan head. Fresh, hoppy aroma with some malt. Taste is similar, perfectly balanced with a nice kick toward the finish. Best Iíve had from Tallgrass thus far.

Surprised with this beer. Has a certain kick that I didn't expect. Good mix between hops and malt. Great, thick head. Dark red in color. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very well balanced beer. A healthy amount of hops, alochol, and sweet malty base. One of the go to tallgrass beers.

JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2014
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...?

Oasis is a pretty wild beer. Out of the can, itís generously heady and you can see a bit of hop resin in the orange body. It has a strong malt presence with a distinct toffee flavor. Thereís also a powerful, bitter hop presence. This beer has a sticky, chewy texture that contributes to a long, slightly fruity finish. Oasis is plays the bittersweet balance almost to perfection. Itís a must-have.
