Default add hops to a glass of beer ?

Okay then I had this idea . I would like to have a blonde with a bit more hop flavor . Dry hopping might do it but I did not get enough in I think .
My idea ( might be a dumb idea ) is to add in some hops to the beer before drinking it . Perhaps just drop in a few leaves or maybe make a quick strong tea and put in a teaspoon of it to a glass of beer.
Anyone done this ?

I sometimes use a french press with whole leaf hops to give it an extra little something. Let it sit for a few minutes, then decant the hop-infused beer into a glass. You could also do the same thing with a mesh bag. Obviously you don't extract as much as you would dry hopping for a few days, but it can be very nice!

I took an oz of citra and threw it into the French press with vodka. I keep it in the freezer and use it to hop up underwhelming beers (pun intended&#128540 works great and also makes an awesome hoptini!

This has been done by a few people:

But it seems that foaming could be an issue with it; it does look awesome, and that is a requirement for my brewing equipment.

So what do you use with the hops in the press ? I assume you put in some liquid and then brew it . How much do you use ?

Yes . I watched a video from who ever does them shows online and they used one of these. I thought about using a air filter with a modified filter as I think that is exactly what that is . If I remember right they used this for secondary like dry hopping .

I don't know if you've ever used a french press, but you would just put some leaf hops in, then your beer on top, let that sit for a few minutes and then press the hops and decant the beer, essentially it's a way to get the hopback/hop infuser effect w/o owning one. There wouldn't be any brewing required.

Exactly. This is how I do it. I've never measured, I just put in a handful of leaf hops till it looks right. Use a larger press than you think you need because there can be some foam.

One of our local breweries does this. There's a pic on the right side of the page:
