COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oasis is a Double ESB/IPAish beer that came about from playing around with one of Jeffs 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 its 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. Whats a stoop? Well, its a good place to drink beer, is what it is.

On tap pours deep red orange, aroma is fairly weak but has some pine and biscuit, with sweet caramel. Big pine and resin up front with a touch of lemon less into biscuit and a bitter finish. Excellent esb!

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2011
crunchy toasty malt (crackers, light caramel, pleasant nuttiness) with bold hop nose (earthy, nutty, raw). a bit syrupy and rough but those things seem to balance out each other and keep this one in line. alcohol isnt noticeable, malt is toasty and firm and the hops are earthy.

blipp (8618) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Draft. Pours amber orange with a thin off white head. Floral hoppy aroma, with crisp grainy and herbal notes, and a light sweetness. The flavor has floral hops, light herbal and earthy hops, and sweet and grainy malty notes. Good stuff.

onceblind (8426) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Slightly murky dark copperish orange with a foamy off white head. Aroma of toast, dark caramel, and a big grassy hop tone. Taste was big and toasty with a big toffee sweetness. Finished by some grassy dry hoping. Bitter, malty, and caramelish dry. Complex and interesting.

Plovmand (8016) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2012
Can at Papsoe. Pours hazy amber with a medium white head. The aroma is fruity hoppy with some caramel notes. The flavour is bitter grassy hops, citrus, caramel and some peaches. Highly bitter finish.

Can thanks to LtDan. Really? A 7.3% 93IBU ESB? Pours with a hazed amber-orange hue and a tan head that fades in the time it takes to write this sentence. Aroma of hops: pine, orange peel, toffee and cake. Smells a bit like a faded DIPA. Taste is hoppy, pine, bitter, malty. A bit astringently bitter. Some orange. Kind of a messy/faded IPA more than a bitter, although there is plenty of lingering bitterness. Malt profile is nice though. Bready with some caramel on the finish. Clean on that account. Even if the brewer was going for something else, this comes across as a faded and underattenuated IPA.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Pint can. Poured clear, lovely reddish-orange with a tall, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up grassy and herbal hops over mostly biscuity malt.. deeper peppery orange notes.. not greatly exciting, but it seemed well-balanced. The flavor was more bitter than the nose suggested, with orange zest and herbal notes leading.. again a biscuity core with a pinch of honey.. finished with a lot of residual, mostly orangey bitterness, peppery alcohol, and a hint of cardboard. Medium-bodied with rolling carbonation across the middle of the palate.. a bit too spicy and bitter, losing some balance.. overall an OK drinker.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7288) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a hazy orange-caramel color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish pine, grapefruit, perfume and undertones of faint caramel and nut. The flavor was bitter and dryish with moderate pine, grapefruit and lemon and light caramel, nut and bread underneath. The finish was long and bitter with lingering pine, grapefruit and perfume. Fairly full bodied. Interesting.
