American Double / Imperial IPA |  7.20% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

3.88/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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!

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!

3.81/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color capped by a spumous head; excellent stickage with a nice curtain of lace

Smell: Caramel, pipe tobacco and stone fruit tones with earthy hops underpinning

Taste: Caramel and stone fruit flavors, up front, with tobacco and earthy hop bitterness building through the middle; the finish is balanced and somewhat sweet

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This can is a little past the "best by" date so that may account for the lack of aggressive hop flavors; much more in the ESB than IPA categories to my palate

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

16oz. can: Poured a brilliant clear amber with tall pillowy head. Sparkling. A beautiful beer. Aroma of multi-grain malt, orange juice and bread and coriander. Sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Sweetness gradually gives way to an earthy bitterness (pine mostly). Bitterness really digs in on the finish with mountainous floral qualities. Medium body that seems lighter than it is because of the high carbonation. A delight to the tongue. An interesting beer. More similar to an English IPA than an ESB. A little less raucous hops might be closer to the imperial ESB label. I liked it though.

3.73/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Big light tan head slowly settles to a nice lacing above a well carbonated copper honey colored beer that one can just see the shadows of his figures through.

Aroma is filled with dark fruits, caramel malts, bitter notes, very light alcohol and some other aspects I don't recognize.

The taste is varied but to me doesn't live up to the aroma. Lighter caramel malts with very light dark fruits or grasses allow some other very subtle tastes to round out a balanced lighter taste.

A very light dryish aspect to the aftertaste of this medium bodied beer.

I don't think the taste of this beer warrants paying more for it. I did like the fact that nothing was overbearing with the taste, just the fact that for the price there should have been more taste.

A: Orange to Amber. Head is a finger that dissipates to a sticky white head that sits at 1/10th of an inch. Lacing is decent throughout.

S: Carmel. Nut. Toffee. Citrus.

T: Per-usual, like almost all Tallgrass products, this is IBU high. Bitter as hell. However, one of my favorite Tallgrass products. I taste burnt caramel. citrus. woodyness. nut.

M: Dry at the end, but the frothy carbonation is quite apparent on the front end.

O: Ehh... a better Tallgrass product, but nothing to write home about.

A-Deep golden brown color. Impermeable. The head is off white and thick and retains well, leaving small patches of lacing on the side of the glass.

S-Bready, dry grains, slight lemony-citrus burn, hops are present. The malty sweetness and bread are what strikes the nose at first, but it transitions quickly into what a DIPA should be: hoppy, citrusy, and a bit astringent.

T-There's a caramel sweetness at the front of the palate that fades quickly. Absolutely delicious. After that bit of sweetness fades, then comes the dry bready/grain aspect which precedes a well balanced symphony of lemongrass, sage, hops, basil, and a slightly tannic finish. Bready malt lingers on the palate.

MF-Smooth with a medium body and medium to heavy carb. Finishes a bit dry. My least favorite aspect of the brew

O-Mother of god. This is damn good. I was shocked. Tallgrass struck a near perfect balance. I believe people aren't ranking that high because TG isn't a reputable brewery yet, but they make some damn fine beers. This is one of the most well balanced DIPA's I've had and tastes similar to Ruination.

3.75/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

From notes. Poured from a 16 oz. can into a tulip.

Oasis has a very full burnt copper color that is slightly hazy. A monster cream colored head forms with the initial pour, sticking around for the duration of the glass and leaving some monster lace stick all over the glass.

A caramel malt presence is obvious in the nose. Toasty, and bready, there is a clear malt presence, as advertised. The hops are leafy and somewhat floral. Overall it smells fairly bitter.

There is a quick flash of caramel sweetness before a long hoppy bitterness comes in. There is a good amount of toasted, bready malt here, but the hops are even bigger. Unfortunately the hoppiness comes in a form of a long, flat bittterness, Leafy and grassy, the hops do not have quite enough depth or variety to make this truly interesting.

The body is on the full side for the style, from the nice malty support. There is not a whole lot of sweetness, nor does it get much of a mouth-watering boost from the hops. The carbonation is full and creamy, and there is a lingering bitterness and stickiness on the lips from the hop residue.

This was a solidly executed beer from Tallgrass; I don’t totally connect with malty IPA’s or leafy, grassy hops, but it was well done.

Pours a rich reddish brown color, with a super creamy light tan head. Light butterscotch aroma. Taste begins with a huge toffee component, then some toasted bread, and finishes with a lemony, piney finish, that also has a hint of smoke in it. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy. Overall a good IPA/Strong Ale/ESB. A bit of a hybrid.

2.61/5  rDev -32.6%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

16 oz. can purchased in the greater Washington D.C. area, unknown birthdate, poured into a Weyerbacher tulip glass, drank 4/26/13 over two hours.

A: 2.75 - murky brownish coloration, minimal clarity (can't see or read through), frothy white one finger head dissipates into subtle glass lacing, moderate-to-large alcohol legs that reagitates the carbonation; overall below average for an imperial IPA

S: 2.5 - really herbal and spicy (likely 2/2 British hops for finishing and/or dry hopping), small amount of pear and stone fruit when really putting your nose into the glass

T: 2.5 - on the front of the tongue, there's a mild bitterness that dissipates as the herbal and spicy aspects appear on the back of the tongue; to me, this tastes much more like an ESB than an American imperial IPA

M: 3 - moderate body, boozy and sticky; moderate-to-high carbonation

O: 2.75 - as I was considering purchasing a single can in the greater Washington D.C. area, I read impressive reviews including a BA score of 90, so I had some moderate-to-high expectations going into drinking, and, unfortunately, this beer really disappointed me; overall, it's an amateurish offering and, to be honest, I have had many homebrewed imperial IPAs that just blow this totally out of the water; it's a British-style IPA-cum-ESB that advertises itself as a hoppy American imperial IPA; I'm hoping that I just purchased an aged bottle , but I won't be purchasing this one again

Can to HFS Sniffer

A: brown to amber in color but leaning toward honey color. Thick 2cm tan head that takes its time going away and pretty much completely opaque

S: the nose is pretty much all malt it has a sweet smell to it though no real hops or other pungent scents to smell so that was kind of disappointing.

T: The taste is definitely malt dominant but on the other hand it is balanced out with hops pretty well as I can distinguish the fresh hop taste. The malt follows the nose in terms of sweetness and it balances out the bitterness of the hops. It is not necessarily an ordinary combination or my favorite but it definitely works.

M: Very thin almost watery but that makes it very drinkable as it also quite oily and has a bit of hop bite to it, decent but nothing special

O:This is an interesting combo as it is quite a malty beer so I see why they call it an ESB but it does have the hoppy characteristics of an IPA without being totally malt dominant so I was really impressed that they made it work but its just not really my style and did not blow me away worth a try for sure especially if malt is your thing.

pint can into Flying Dog chalice. drink by 04/05/13.

A: very hazy looking brew. a murky light brown color. head is slightly off-white and is big. retention and lacing are very good.

S: orange peel as well as orange rinds. hop aroma is pungent and floral.

T: flavor starts sweet and fruity. there is a meaty backbone of grain that provides almost wood-like notes at times. finish is bitter which dries the beer out a bit.

M: carbonation is a bit too low for me. would like some more bubbles. medium body.

D: this beer should definitely be labeled as an ESB on this website, not a DIPA. nice twist on a traditional English styled beer. pass in my book.

4.1/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Cloudy copper color with a very large, foamy, ballooning, thick, off-white head. Great retention that finally settles into a thin lacing.

S - Strong pine and orange hop aroma along with about an equally strong caramel and toffee aroma. A lemony, herbal tea aroma in the background. The hops hit your nose first but there is a definite underlying sweetness. An English DIPA aroma.

T - Starts with that sweet caramel and toffee flavor that persists throughout the sip. Strong bitter hops come into play mid-sip with a resinous pine flavor taking the lead. Orange and zest flavors also pretty strong. That gives way to a slight lemon flavor on the finish. The herbal tea flavors are always in the back making there presence known but never grabbing the spotlight. Finishes fairly bitter.

M - Medium to light body. Average carbonation with a fairly sticky feel.

D - Really easy to drink. I keep coming back for another sip. Interesting mix of flavors that just seems to work.

Notes: Interesting somewhat English DIPA. I wasn't sure about the nose or the taste when I was trying to assess it, but I kept coming back for more and enjoying it. A beer that you can't really over think or analyze. Just enjoy drinking it because in the end, the flavors just work.

4.15/5  rDev +7.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Translucent copper hue with very light effervescence and a big frothy three finger off-white head.

Aroma: Lots of pine and some earthy hop notes. Caramel malt and just a good barley presence. The aroma seems slightly subdued but is very clean nonetheless. Reminiscent of DFH 90 Min.

Taste: The bitterness shows up immediately and carries through from beginning to end. The hops flavor here is just like in the nose, earthy with very nice pine accents. Like sucking on a pine cone or the smell of an evergreen tree. Its quite robust, especially for 7.2% ABV, and delivers a nice malty flavor to balance the hops and the 93 IBUs. Caramel malt and that hearty barley flavor. Good balance of flavors.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and a tad syrupy. Average drinkability. Smooth.

Final Thoughts: Really enjoying this one. For a fully robust Imperial beer, it has a relatively low ABV which makes it easier to have in larger doses (it comes in a 16 oz can). Would I drink it again? Yes, it might even make a good substitute for DFH 90 since I can't get that here.

Thanks to my buddy NJG for picking up this brew for me during his travels.

Light tarnish to this copper colored brew. Good two finger head after the pour and some foam-age and lacing for all sixteen ounces. There's a few small bubbles rising from the sides of the glass.

Citrusy nose from the start, fresh orange peel and some toasted citric rinds as well. There's a good toasted, bready malt backbone behind this beers aroma as well.

Citrus bitterness upfront. Moist orange peel hop resiny palate. The middle and finish is chewy and a little more malty. Faint musty breads and biscuits. Bitter from start to finish that's for sure. Some West coast style bitterness from the heart of America, maybe? Definetly worth checking out if you can get your hands on it.

Yay, tall boy cans, thanks to bunkrock (Reddit).

As much as I love cans, they are a bitch to pour, and it rises up a huge frothy and creamy 4 finger head that fades fairly slowly with lots of lacing, over fairly hazy auburn amber reddish orange color.

Nose has some big-ol hops. Big earthy hops mostly, with a light candied orange peel and candy like hops aroma, a little floral and fruity, and smells like lots of bittering hops. Malts are a plenty as well, with a big malty sweetness in the aroma alone, with a hint of toasty reddish caramel malts, and touch of toffee.

Taste starts slightly creamy, a little creamy malt base, and quickly comes the sweetness with a big malty flavor, caramel and toffee, a little candy, and chewy. Hops are there as well, fairly bitter, with some light spicy and plenty earthy, little grassy hop character that hits a plateau early but remains fairly bitter throughout. Just a bit of candied orange peel hop character, it really seems creamy and chewy like they put oats in it. Finish is still fairly sweet, more candy and caramel toffee flavors, more bitterness that ramps a bit on the finish and sticks around forever it seems, and a bit more earthy light citrus bitterness.

Mouth is med to a bit fuller bodied, creamy and chewy, decent carb.

Overall pretty good, lots of hops, lots of malts, both go together well, nothing out of place, tasty, nice long bitter finish that doesn't disappoint, but with all that doesn't really go above and beyond.

Deep copper/amber in color, with a big, fluffy head of off-white foam.

Taste-Almost a malt-bomb. Sweet toasted malt in wave after wave. Not much hop appearance here. Overly sweet for a double IPA. Perhaps not the right style category for this beer.

A: The beer is hazy amber orange in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high dense beige head that gradually died down and left a coating of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of pine resin hops along with some notes of citrus hops.
T: Like the smell, flavors of pine resin hops stand out in the overall taste, which has a moderate amount of bitterness with notes of citrus hops. Hints of caramel malts are also present and become stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be a little maltier compared to other IPAs and hides its alcohol very well.

Poured into a balloon glass.

The beer is a dark caramel copper color. A thick, foamy cream colored head recedes to a light film with spotty, sticky lacing on the glass.

The beer smells malty and sweet up front, with floral, grapefruit hops in the end.

The beer tastes Slightly malty and sweet to begin. Then an almost uncanny salty note comes in, like pretzels. This gives way to the hoppy, bitter grapefruit finish. It's got balance.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a dry finish.

Overall, an interesting journey from malts to hops. It's decent, but this will be a one-off.

P- Thanks to my buddy Matt

A- a nice deep dark amber color. A huge foamy 4 finger head that takes forever to dissipate. The head is on of the best i have seen. Looks like whipped cream.

S- strong pine/resin smell at first but then there comes some citrus notes, a tart lemon. toffee malts come thru on the backend as well. very nice.

F- the pine comes thru strong in the flavor. It overwhelms everything else noted before. I do gather the citrus but the toffee/cramel malt is lost.

M- quite dry like an IPA should be. Not too watered down and the flavors are captured in the mouth.

O- A decent IPA. I was never a huge fan until about a year and half ago and this ranks as one of the great IPA's i have had. The citrus could come out more in the flavor.

A: Pours a hazy deep amber bordering on garnet red in color. The beer has a two finger tall dense pillowy beige head that slowly reduces to an even denser thick layer covering the entire surface of the beer evenly with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: There are light to moderate aromas of caramel malt sweetness with a significant hop presence - there are pine/resin, lemon/citrus, earthy, and spicy hop notes.

T: The beer has a moderate body of caramel malt sweetness that underlies the strong hop flavors. There are flavors of pine/resin, lemon/citrus, and spicy hops that impart a moderate amount of bitterness which lingers but not too long.

M: On the heavier side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Creamy with moderate amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: A very enjoyable beer and an interesting hybrid of the ESB and DIPA styles. Very nice combination of hop flavors and definitely a beer that I would have again - I have been impressed with all of the beers I have tried from this brewery.

Poured into a snifter.

A - Big pillowy off-white head. Deep, hazy amber that leaves a little bit of lacing.

S - Has some lemon-like citrus tones, some earthy/spicy hops, along with a touch of toasty malt sweetness. Very dank resin hoppiness.

T - Starts off with a large malt presence. Very toasty with some more caramel sweetness. When those piney hop flavors appear, the sweetness hangs on for the ride. The alcohol seems to blend in great when the giant malt and hop are the main emphasis. Nice and dry for a double IPA. Has a pleasant lingering hop finish along with some sharpness from the yeast.

M - Medium-full to full bodied, light to moderate carbonation. Great dryness.

O - Excellently crafted balance. I often run into many DIPAs that get slick on my palate and also have a thick viscosity, but this beer was neither. Just as the can said, it has a lot of characteristics of an ESB and also a DIPA which I found pleasantly refreshing.
