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.

May be the best session beer I have ever had. Awesome balance. Great dark-chocolate type back of tongue bitterness. This is the beer that saved this brewery from being written off from me. Made me re-try and re-evaluate their lineup. Big fan. They just havenít made that "it" beer. Yet.

Nice amber color. Mildly bitter aroma. The body is quafable with a solidly bitter body with just the right amounts of malt.

Loved the deep copper color and high protein head. Pint can, but that didnít bother me at all. Rich malty flavor and nice carbonated tingle. Ií. not sure about the aroma, Iíve heard ígrassyí and íflat.í Flavor is a wonderful full balance of caramel, mellow bitter and a tiny hint of citrus. I love this beer.

Serving glass: Poured from can into Nonic Imperial Pint. Appearance: Cloudy, dark orange with foamy off-white head that lasts awhile and leaves light lacing. Aroma: Citrus and loads of caramel and toasted malts. Taste: Very malty caramel backbone accented by toasted malts and a very light tea-like characteristic. Strong citrusy American hops combat the malts, with a piney, spicy and bitter finish. Overall, malty but very bitter. Palate: Moderate carbonation, creamy and smooth medium to full body, dry finish. Overall: Never had a Double ESB before. It is quite good, but primarily seems to be a malt-focused IPA. Almost a DIPA, but not quite. Overall, fairly impressive.

Cant believe that i havent rated this. Fuckin Badass Beer. About as much beer you can have in a beer. so much stuff in this beer. not a diverse amount of stuff, but tons of the most important stuff. malt and hops. try this beer whenever you can, it is a real treat it you like big beer. itís definitely a double esb in every way. this would be soooo good barrel aged. they have to know. that. itís quite obvious that this is just a low alcohol barley wine really. nutty roast with pine hops. this beer is so american. i love it

Cloudy Brown/Orange color with a hefty sized head and boatloads of lacing left behind. The flavors consist of Piney/Citrus/Floral Hops, bready-biscuits and some sweet caramel. This is also a very malty beer, even by IPA standards. Itís medium bodied with an almost chewy thickness to it, but itís smooth and creamy thanks to the lack of carbonation. Overall, itís an excellent IPA that any fan of the style should check out.

Can. Really hoppy aroma. Murky, dark amber. Really nice white frothy head and lace. Very hop forward flavor but smartly maintains the essence of the ESB style. Along with their stout, which i had tonight, gained a new appreciation for Tallgrass as a brewer.

1 pint can. Itís rare, these days, to have a beer that actually MAKES me want to rate it. This, however, is one of them. Pours a murky gold with a massive, rocky light tan head. Excellent sticky lace - a rather pretty glass of brew. Big herbal nose, some orange citrus, caramel and a tannic tea note. Medium bodied, this beer is bigger than itís humble can - more herbal-ish tea flavors, dry citrus and something herbal and spicy. Finishes drier than expected, with the spicy herbal flavors hanging to the sides of the tongue. A hoppy beast matched with a strong malty spine. Really enjoyed this! A bargain at a bit over $2.

This is a solid beer. Aroma: big pine/citrus, hops mix. Taste was the same but with a solid malt backbone. Sharp bitter finish. More like a DIPA to me.
