Figueroa Mountain Hoppy Poppy IPA

Type: IPA
Origin: Buellton, California
Price: $6.59 per 22 oz
ABV: 6.5%
NSP: 6.4

This is one of those beers that you see on the shelves and just have to try because of some gimmick.  In this case, the gimmick is using poppy seeds in the brewing process.  And I must say, you can really sense the poppy seeds.  It seriously tastes like eating a poppy seed muffin mixed with some indifferent hops.  The hops are so indifferent that you can't actually smell anything coming off of this beer. This really has the chance to be an astonishing IPA if they added some more floral hops.  As it stands now, its like an english bitter mixed with a poppy seed muffin.   

A side note Adrian thinks this is an excellent beer, but then again, his review would read "This is a good beer".  He is seriously the most casual frenchman.
