Is it possible to be addicted to hops? Sometimes I just need hops.

Can I get a witness?

The first step is admitting you are powerless over hops lol. Not to hijack but i saw somewhere someone was selling hop scented air fresheners lol. Wish i remembered what website it was.

They are just as addictive as the other famous plant from the same family.

So, after hearing everyone praise the hops, I decided to give hoppy beers a second chance. On the way home, I picked up a 22oz Breckenridge small Batch 471 Double IPA. I have to say, the first few sips smacked me in the face, but after that, I've actually enjoyed it. I'm not going to say I'm a hop head now, but I think I can see why people would like an IPA. Once you get past the shock, they are actually pretty good. I still think I would like a bit more balance, but it's not too bad, not too bad at all.

there are a lot of brewing things that can be addictive hops are one, Ive had cravings for hefeweizen too. Sometimes I have cravings specifically for chinook hops. when I dont have any hoppy beers on hand ive even had to make hop tea to satisfy the craving.

Wow! You might need to seek rehab.
