Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #54 (July 2011):

Double ESB? Some traditionalists would poo-poo that idea, but we’ll boo right back at them! Tallboy, good choice. Epic lacing on top of a hazy, dark amber color. Grainy, toasty, vegetal, grassy, spicy, fruity, earthy and herbal aroma. Crisp thick body. Malt, alcohol and hops are titans in their own way here. Toasted malt of dried grass and biscuits; hops become resin- like with tobacco and citric flavors, and the alcohol drops some ripe fruit and warmth on the palate. All around amped-up flavors, but balanced and nuanced. Bittersweet finish. Call it what you want ... this is a damn good beer.

Wow!! This one was a very pleasant surprise, after having Ethos, my expectations were that this one would be inferior, but in my opinion, that was NOT the case. One thing, I prefer piney IPAs vs grapefruity ones, which makes me biast in favor of this one.

As mentioned above, this has a piney hops flavor to this one, a lot like Sierra Nevada's Torpedo, which I adore. I'm not experienced with the ESB part, so I can't say much there, but overall, this beer absolutely hits the spot, and I will be a regular customer year round.
