Very Good
Eager to ShareEager to Share
Notes: Eager to Share is brewed with Citra and Mosaic hops. A smooth little pale ale with a snappy hop presence showcasing intense aromatics, a hint of balanced bitterness that fades into full, ripe melon flavors, balanced with a full mouthfeel from grist and a studious water profile.

Much better than the reviews. Great looking beers with great lite mouthfeel. tastes a perfect balance between NEIPA and older CA style ipas. Goes down smooth. Highly recommend

Wow. Pleasantly surprised with this one out of North Haven, CT. Grabbed it on a whim from a local store. Compare it to Treehouse Green, which is strange since there's no Galaxy hop here. It also reminds me a little of Back East ice Cream Man, but it's better balanced. It's a little more muted than Green, less mango/passion fruit. But it's equally well crafted. The mouth feel is incredible. The hop bite is incredible. You literally smell the pepper/tobacco from the open can. It's listed as Citra/mosaic but I don't particularly taste the mosaic. I do smell it though. Smell is reminiscent of Wizard Fight from Counterweight (for those of you from Southern CT) but taste is nothing like it. So I smell Mosaic but I think I taste Citra - an incredible overabundance of it, almost assaulting.

It pours extremely cloudy but pale with a perfect white foamy head. Carbonation is tight and smooth. It's honestly not going to be everyone's favorite beer, and I, in fact, found it a little overpowering by the end of the 16 oz. But there is no question that this is incredibly well made, intentionally to be what it is. Marlowe went for it and they got it. In the overcrowded market of attempted Tree House clones (most fail), this beer manages to capture that spirit for real and carve out its own niche for hop lovers. If you've taken trips to Monson/Charlton for releases of specials such as Juice Machine, Gggreeeenn (whatever), you will find this to be right there among those.

Pours a hazy straw color, slight very white head that dissipates quickly. On the nose getting mainly a melon smell with a very slight slate scent. Taste is again of melon, very dry, hint of berry like taste. Very solid beer

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy whitish yellow in color. It poured with a short off white head that died down, leaving a thin collar around the edge and some patches of bubbles on the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of gooseberries are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of gooseberries along with hints of honeydew melon. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The lack of bitterness and juicy mouthfeel make this beer taste like a New England IPA.

Serving type: can
