COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
Draft sample. Copper in colour with medium/smooth carbonation. Aromas are of muted sweet orange, and black pepper. Thick pale malt upfront in the mouth along with pine resin, and fruity C-hop notes which come through more as it warms out. Solid bitterness. Nothing really pops here, and the body is a bit on the thick side. Ok-ish.

Ungstrup (29849) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2012
Can. A hazy amber beer with a lazing yellowish head. The aroma has notes of lemony hops, straw, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, malt, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish.

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Pours a hazy burnt sienna color with a nice three finger mocha head. Aromas are citrus, caramel malts and touches of earthy spice. On the palate its pleasant grapefruit, bitter citrus, earthy spice and plenty of malts to hold this one up to other DIPA’s. Which is what Id say this ranks in as. Bold.

Can from a very generous trader. Pours a reddish amber with an off white head. Some lacing. Nose and taste of caramel, burnt malt, resin/pine and dried citrus. Finishes dried citrus and burnt malt. Medium body.

BOSSbrewer (1988) - Arkansas, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Han from a can at Orcutt's place. Pours a clear amber with a nice head. Lots of maltiness and some citrus. A very nice medium bodied beer. Nice.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Sampled at the 7th Annual Parkville Microbrew Festival on April 24th, 2010. Pours amber with a white head. This seems more like an IPA than an ESB. This is very drinkable with a good hop profile. I heard that this is replacing the Wheat as a rotating seasonal.

unclemike (2309) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - AUG 7, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2010 Clear deep amber ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Malty, phenolic aroma and flavor. Medicinal with notes of bandage and toffee. Peppery hops. Medium-bodied with intermediate carbonation. Mildly sweet, medicinal finish

heemer77 (5108) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 8, 2010
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.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Fresh 16 oz. can. Pours lightly hazy, with a deep reddish-amber color, the body supports a small, fading head of beige tinted froth. Settling as a bubbly blanket, the head leaves tattered ribbons of sticky lacing etched onto the glassware. The nose is heavy on toasted biscuit and caramel, suggesting also baked bread crust and a slight hint of nuttiness. Hops are prominent and citrusy-herbal, showing notes of orange rind and tea leaves. Flavors are similarly balanced, again based in caramelized biscuit and toasted malt. Hop bitterness is well above average for an ESB, giving notes of orange pith and grapefruit. Smooth, creamy, and lightly carbonated, the palate shows ample, malty substance, but seems weighty with sugars. Overall, it’s a decent ESB-IPA hybrid, but it’s not really my style.

oldgrumpy (104) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2011
By taste, hard to tell if it an IPA or an ESB. Not a great example of either. Drinkabe but nothing great going on here. There is a lingering bitterness which I do not like. Hard to define what is going on with this one. Are there any real good beers from west of the big river to the big mountains?
