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.

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!

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.

16oz can. Pours a reddish amber with a medium creamy white head.

The aroma is a bit strange - fruity resiny hops and some weird off note.

The flavor is a bit strange as well. Thereís some woody caramel notes with a decent amount of hop bitterness - fruity, resiny, a little minty and almost sour. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, itís a bit strange to me. Maybe itís the mix of ESB with big American hops. The blend of caramel, wood, fruits and some almost sour notes just didnít work for me.

T: entirely top hopped, sms dry hopped, big hoppy mouth ball, not quite balanced with malt character, hop level slightly overwhelming.

Pours a huge head, color is amber/orange. Nose is quite hoppy. Taste is of pine. A little hard to drink, causes your mouth to pucker and is too hoppy kills your taste buds.

A go between of their IPA and Ale. Sort of shallow in taste, typical metallic finish, a trademark of tallgrass beer. Not worth the effort. Also, heard the few batches available were shipped outside Tallgrass hometown. Thanks Tallgrass.

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...?

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

Smells like honey, hops. Tastes pretty bitter. Hops, golden raisins, pretty alcoholic, tastes like a can.
