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.

Can. Hazy caramel-tinged amber beer with a small off-white head. Very peachy-hoppy aroma , fruity, toasted malty, hints of caramel and citrus. Taste is heavy sweet and heavy bitter, citrusy, herbal. Medium to full body.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2013 16 oz can. Pours dark orange with a nice head. Smells like honey and citrus. Very sweet for a DIPA with some citrus and a nice hoppy bitterness at the end. Very good beer.

Pretty good beer. Served at a good temperature with a nice light tan with golden highlights, foamy head that slowly settles and lots of lace. Color is a very slightly hazy orange honey amber. Aroma is hops, dry deciduous twigs, used leather, malt, toffee, hint of butterscothch. Flavorís much like nose and has fairly decent balance for this style of beer which is hop on top (:-}) bitter, then a little malt sweet and carbonic tang to round out. Body is good with bitterness dominating the full mouth and good carbonation. Finish is like flavor, long, and leaves me able to have a couple more.

Poured from a can to a pint/shaker glass. Appearance: Dark amber/orange but hazy in color. Small head but may be due to the pour. Light head lacing and I can lightly see carbonation bubbling up through the haze. Very good looking ESB/IPA. They state it's an imperial ESB almost an IPA. Good mix between the two. Taste: Very hop forward followed by a malty finish. It isn't like and Imperial IPA in that it doesn't have much of a hop bite aftertaste. Very enjoyable. Verdict: I was very impressed overall. It fed my hop head needs while giving me the malty finish as well. I will definitely buy again and keep it on hand. Tallgrass has a couple beers I've been impressed with. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Purchased at Breeze Thru Wine & Spirits in Milwaukee, WI; enjoyed on a rainy Sunday night lounging around the house. Appearance is a cloudy, moderate caramel with an abundant white head that laces to the glass. Aroma is rich in earthy hops, equally malty with a mixture of toasted malt and caramel. Taste is pretty thick, chewy, nice bitterness that sticks around and becomes partially citrusy, as well as a visceral maltiness with a kick from the ABV. Iím liking this one, not quite a session beer but still goes down pretty nicely.

Toffee malt, very bready and yeasty. Has a toasty graininess as well. Good amounts of sweet ruby red grapefruit that transforms into a full on grapefruit bitterness and grows stronger and spicier through the finish. The malt a is dense and carries through as well.

Fantastic, pillowy, lush head - - delicious on its own. Then silky smooth sipping - - before the hops start to bite home. Bigger and far more assertive than most anything in any pub from Newquay to Newcastle, the hops get good and stiff, but some candy-like malt keeps it friendly. A really unique and worthwhile brew. Itís fun to drink stuff like this.

Cloudy amber colored pour. Giant white head. Tons of lacing. Aroma of malt with some hops dancing around in the background. Some grain. Nice malty flavor with some citrus and hops. Very tasty. Sweet background of malt in the finish. Very good beer. Mmmmm.

A nice piney nose. Tastes like a strong/imperial IPA. Big, but not too malty like most imperial IPAs I find.

I have enjoyed a couple four packs of this beer already. Dark copper color with a one finger, cream colored head. Earthy, floral hops driven aroma with background hints of citrus, biscuit, rye and a touch of dark caramel. The bitterness is fairly aggressive. Earthy, floral hops, dark toasted and nutty graininess in the flavor. The bitterness lingers. Easy to drink and full of flavor.
