As noted in the description, this beer really fell in between the two styles of imperial IPA and ESB. I find that to be great. A beer that doesn't necessarily have a definitive style, but still has direction, and that is accomplished with Oasis. The malts are nicely pronounced but balanced, a warm and slightly toasted dark rye-ish palate with a tad of buttery sweetness and well-rounded fruitiness, so much so that I can't pinpoint a type of fruit. Grapefruit? Nah. Apple or apricot? Not at all. Papaya? Possibly. Whatever the fruitiness is it leans more towards tropical, but once again this is a balanced beer, nothing to be off-putting.
I saw a lot of reviews described the hoppiness as "grassy," and I too thought this myself upon tasting it. But I had to ask myself if this was a manifestation of my subconscious and the name of the brewery being "Tallgrass." Who knows? It was great though and had a distinctly pronounced bitterness (but not overpowering or even dominant). Sharp astringent alcohol finish.
The mouthfeel is well carbonated, medium bodied, a tad bit creamy while refreshing.
Great beer. I want more.
Serving type: on-tap

16 oz. can into a nonic pint glass.
A: Pours a clear amber with a nice two finger frothy white head that fades to a delicate lace on the sides of the glass.
S: Malty up front with caramel sweetness, but also touches of citrus and some piney hops.
T: Nice citrus with orange and grapefruit balanced with pine and earthy bitterness. The malt isn't as strong as I expected as the hops take over.
M: Medium bodied and smooth with a nice crisp bitterness. Goes down easily.
O: Really solid beer...definitely more IPA than Imperial ESB but solid nonetheless!
