Default You know you're a hophead when...

while waiting to add it to the boil kettle, you stick your whole face in the hop bag and inhale as long and deeply as possible!

When you stop caring about much hop character there is and care more about the infinite variety of intense hop characters that can exist. It's the natural evolution of the hop head.

When every commercial beer you drink leaves you thinking about popping the top and dry hopping a few bottles then re caping to see if you can improve it.

You have seriously considered using the coffee pot and a couple ounces of hops to make "tea" during brew day

When you only make small batches, but you buy your hops in bulk... and when your second batch, is a double dry hopped ipa 90+ibus.
