This is a good beer...def worth downing a few.
Wheatsville on South Lamar keeps OTXBC stocked. And it's 6.99/6er.
I'm very curious to try this now. Haven't had a chance to give Oasis a shot yet, but it sounds like I need to start with this one
I'm an idiot...was thinking of a WFM on Lamar...in Arlington.
I think their distribution is pretty limited in DFW.
If you're in Arlington and looking for Oasis, hit up Hall's or Specs.
Gonna pick up a case of Meta today from Specs.
Tried a couple of cans of this a couple of days ago (on different days, from the same pack). I thought it was alright- it got really cerealy/husky toward the end of each sip, and that started to grate on me. Also, the hop seemed a little overtaxed. Was a touch more dank and somewhat oniony than expected. Maybe I got a slightly off batch? I don't know. I'll try it again if someone hands me one, but I don't think I can buy another pack based off of my experience.
You guys, right after I decided to buy this it apparently all ran out.
The session IPA seems to be a beast much more challenging to tame than the standard IPA. I can name a few dozen IPA's that I think are world-class, but the list is exceptionally smaller for session IPA's. Oasis is on to something here. Great beer for the local climate IMO.
I'm regretting any role I've played in making this beer more popular....Because it's sold out at a few of my regular stops!
Someone with more home brewing experience than myself could probably answer this better, but one reason session beers are so difficult to pull off is without a higher ABV, there isn't much there to mask or hide any off flavors that show up.
So in conclusion, awesome session IPA = zero to little amount of off flavors = Oasis can frickin' brew
I don't know where you're at, but if it's H-town, the heights Kroger (Shepherd and 11th) had plenty when I stopped in the weekend... should be lots left.
I get the feeling that mass-consumption of this beer ensued (around H-town anyway) after Joey tweeted out his appreciated for it... that's when I bothered to try it...
Or its really selling because its a session IPA with a cool hippie looking can?
Helped seal the deal for me.
It's selling for me because I want less alcohol with more flavor.
I read that to mean that you want "great taste and less filling." Only took 40 years for someone to actually brew that catchphrase.
That is exactly what I want. Too bad it is not from people who advertise it.
Drinking one right now. It's good. Price is great, but I'll spend my money on RA White.
Just purchased. Can confirm. Is delicious.
Picked this up today. Very nice beer for the summer. It has quite an impressive nose for a session IPA
D&Q got some in a couple days ago.
Craft & Growler has it on tap.....
Growler Room Oltorf had it over the weekend for a decent price...they still may have it. Picked up a sixer at Whichcraft for a weekend cookout and it was a hit.
$16 for 64oz is decent?
Why would anyone buy a growler fill of a local IPA that is readily available in cans across the city?
It baffles me. You get more beer out of a 6 pack, usually half the price, and you dont need to drink it in one sitting. Some people with growlers just confuse me.
Because Eric is like those Sprint commercials where the rich people just don't get why splitting their phone bill in half is necessary. I mean who wants to actually save money and get more product?
Really? Everyone is pretty unanimous about this beer being amazing, but I'm going to have to be the horrible person and say it was very "meh." Bought a sixer and was impressed by the packaging, but that's where it ended. I then tried it on tap at a bar I frequent and still thought meh. A better Texas sessional IPA? Independence's Hoppy Diver. An amazing sessional IPA that I ALWAYS keep stocked in my fridge? Oskar Blues' Pinner. That right there is the good stuff. I highly suggest it. Plus, the Meta-Modern has been at the same bar for over two weeks while everything else around it sold out, especially the Hoppy Diver when it was on.
I know tastes differ, but I haven't really seen much love for Meta-Modern until seeing this thread. Seriously, try Pinner. So good.
EDIT: If anyone is looking for it, I've seen plenty at Whole Foods at the Domain.
I thought it was good - for a session ipa... Smell was great, but the taste was ok. From all of this talk, I was expecting full IPA taste, not IPA light (I know its a session, but this thread tho). Not bad in the least, just... pretty good.
Will try again, and hope maybe I just got a couple cans in Dallas that werent as fresh or something.
I don't even see how Pinner comes close to Meta Modern. Pinner was way too bitter and imbalanced.
I'm cool with calling MM an IPA light...I really enjoy it for the summer.
Tried Meta Modern last night. I was blown away. That's the best session ale I've had, really great aroma and taste
I liked Pinner as well but not as much as Meta and its a solid $2 more per sixer. Hoppy Diver is packaged? I haven't seen it yet.
I have sent a bunch of Meta out too to folks all over and haven't seen or heard any meh feedback from them. Everyone seemed to love it.
But yeah everyone has their own taste. I don't care for a lot of beers that people go nuts for.
It's absolutely insane that I have to try to get to the store the day it's released or I miss it. Same goes for RedBud...they're flying off the shelves!
It just goes to show that if you make good beer, it will sell, regardless of brewery.
I have never seen any Independence beer being sought after before - but RedBud? That sells out immediately.
I just bought a case...still want more though. And that Meta Modern get better every time I drink it!
Both of those are soooo good after a jog, it should be illegal
Finally had some of this. This is the best interpretation of the style I have yet. They really nailed it.
DFW didn't get any this week and my regular stop are out....
That was my experience with it. I thought it was OK but no where near the level of praise it's getting in this thread
I think it has to do more with residual sugars and generally a higher hop extraction because of a lower starting gravity. It's very easy to over hop a low gravity beer.
This just clocked in at $10.81 at Sunrise. WTF? Taking the Yellow Rose route.
How is $10.81 for a six pack even close to $9.99 for a 750ml? That's less than half the price per oz.
