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.

Notes. Tap. Hazy brown/orange color with a small white head. Not the prettiest looking beer (castleton ftw!). Nose is grassy and wheatlike. Not to impressed with that. Sweet and floral taste. Caramel and a perfume like taste lead to a slightly bitter finish. Medium bodied and fairly sticky. Iím thinking this one may have been past itís prime.

At the 5th Annual Richmond Industry Gathering on 11/28/2010 courtesy of Mike. Clear amber body with a small off-white ehad. Earthy fruit and alcohol aroma. Earthy flavor with some caramel. Medium body with moderately high carbonation.

[Can] Pours hazy reddish-brown with a decent khaki head. Aroma is sweet and herbal. Taste is rounded lemon up front, moderate bitterness, a grassy, herbal quality, then dominant malt towards the end, which merges with the hops in an unusual way. Fairly thick mouthfeel, smooth, long finish. Overall, not terrible, but not overly enjoyable. I can see how others would enjoy this, but it isnít my thing, and not something I plan on revisiting.

Deccent mid-range ipa. Good hop presence but a bit sweet. Some mineral qualities and quite thick. Drinkable and not without complexity but forgetable.

Barreras (850) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours a copper color with a malt aroma. It has a floral hoppy aroma and taste as well. A very dry tasting beer that has a strong bitter aftertaste. Beer was in a tall can which gave it a slight metallic taste.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Nice red pour with a big forthy off-white head. Sweet caramel malt. Not much hop character which is really surprising. Maybe some slight spicy floarl notes, but mostly just a bland caramel bomb.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 24, 2012
Draft at JL Beers. Pours clear copper, thick off-white head, passable lacing. Nose is spicy citrus hops, caramelized cardboard, earth/ mineral, and soap. Flavours of spicy lemon, ultra aggressive grassy hops, tea, and some vegetal notes. One more to add to the íBitters Fucking Suckí pile.

Pour is gorgeous! Tan/brown with tan head. Nose is weak. Caramel and sugar smacks, but weakly so! Pine and floral hops are good, but a bit much. The finish is so long itís possibly eternal. I ate a tin of sardines after drinking this and the aftertaste was still there!

Gription79 (2158) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Poured from a pint sized can. Pours amber with tan head. This beer is grainy, earthy hops,fruity, vegetal. Not a interesting beer, it was made big, just because.

Wow...a bit too hoppy for my palate! It has a bit of a kick too. I can have one or two of these and thatís it fot both reasons. Might be best with a meal, not for just drinking by itself.
