Hoppy Poppy IPA is identified by its intense hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. The brilliant appearance and dry texture of this IPA is reminiscent of a fine Santa Ynez Valley chardonnay and is the Master Brewer’s favorite vintage.

Poured from the bottle into a shaker glass. Golden color with a cream colored head and nice lacing. Aroma is sweet and bready with some floral hops. It could be my mind playing tricks on me since I know they're in there, but I swear I'm picking up the poppy seeds in the aroma too. There is a lot of malt notes in the flavor with breadiness and sweetness that seems like toffee, but may be some influence from the poppy seeds. Floral hops come in towards the finish. A little unbalanced towards the sweet malty side for my taste. Light / medium bodied and there seems to be some diacetyl present. Not very impressed.

22oz bottle from BevMo Pasadena. Hazy Amber, good head. Citrus fruit grain hop aroma. Resin & mandarin orange flavour. Flowery resin hop aftertaste. A bit unbalanced.

Freaky_tiki (854) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2015
Toronto Cask Days 2015. Man this is damn fresh beer. Dripping with mosiac hops. Candy, fruit salad, squeezed citrus, berries. Low bitterness. Sad I probably won’t ever see this beer again.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Citric hoppy base, with mild malty sweetness, and mild-moderate bitterness. Solid.

BeerGainz (6) - California, USA - OCT 5, 2015 does not count
Good ol’ hoppy west coast IPA. Rather mellow and easy to drink but still has a nice bitter bite at the end that doesn’t linger.

Hoprider (236) - DENMARK - SEP 19, 2015
Clear golden copper pour with a small semi frothy head. Almost no nose at all. Just a small hint of sweet grapefruit and sweet white wine. Taste is very mild, nice mouthfeel but not much hop in the taste. Not enough to call it hoppy poppy.. And this was bought in Santa Barbara so one would assume this was would be somewhat fresh. Weak finish. Not at bad beer but had higher hopes.

(En fût au taproom de Santa Barbara): Amertume terreuse après une bonne savate caramel/érable, thé noir et agrumes pales.

reggiedunlop (3538) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Pours a clear golden/orange color with a medium white head. Aroma has earthy hoppiness accented with grapefruit and orange. Flavor is fairly earthy and resinous with hints of pine and grapefruit. Mouthfeel is medium and slick with a dry and very earthy/bitter finish that lingers to resinous.

SinH4 (1399) - Garching, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2015
On tap at the taproom. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is hoppy, marmalade. Taste is bitter marmalade, pineapple, maybe melon. Oily mouthfeel, a bit of a boozy kick towards the end. Uh, this one’s interesting and unusual, but something about this bothers me.
