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.

Poured from can to an oversized snifter. Pours a hazy and very dark burnt orange/copper color. Every bit of a two finger head with some gorgeous lacing as you drink it. The scent is of piney hops, sweet malts and a hint of caramel. The taste is an explosion of hops at first and it gradually mellows into a sweet caramel finish with some citrus noticeable. The mouthfeel matched up well with the flavor. It has a fairly full feel and is also quite drinkable. I bought this beer based on a recommendation from my local craft beer store owner and was kind've apprehensive over it. Turned out to be a great purchase and one that I'll make over and over again.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A: Pours a cloudy dark copper, orange. 4 finger khaki head dies down to a solid 1 finger head in a couple minutes. Nice lacing. Overall, excellent.

S: Sharp hops first thing noticed, some grassy herbalness, light bread crust malts. Quite good.

T: Prickly bitterness from the hops, pleasantly bitter, malt heavy with sort of "cantaloupe melon" background. Finishes clean with hop bitterness lasting. Very nice!

M: Again slightly prickly hop sensation, medium heaviness on the tongue, moderately carbonated, slightly oily. Near perfect for the style. Very well balanced, not as flat and oily as some others in the style.

O: I reside in Junction City, not far from this brewery and that is why I decided to give this a try. I'm glad I did. I always enjoyed ESP/IPA style beers on occasion, but I can't remember having one this balanced and flavorful. I will be picking some more of this up for sure!

This is my favorite overall Pale out right now. To call it an Imperial is a stretch. It isn't quite as big as it tastes, but it is a pretty big beer at 7.2; and it's best quality is its inability to be defined. It's just out of balance enough to appeal to my hop-freak side. But it's sweet, bubbly and smooth which appeals to my more monkish tendencies. And it's not from Lawrence. So that's good.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This beer pours a bright, vibrant red-orange color. The head is one and a half inches in height, and recedes slowly into chunky lacing that sticks around until the beer is gone. The aroma is of fresh grapefruit and flowers. It is a strong aroma. The taste is of flower bed, herbs, and a hint of grapefruit. It is flavorful without being bold, and I like that. The mouthfeel is slightly lighter than medium bodied witha silky texturem, and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a really, really good beer. It reminds me a lot of Surly's Bitter Brewer. I can see this beer quickly becoming a session favorite of mine.
