A drug user or addict. Hophead is an umbrella term for users of everything from cocaine to marijuana (or 'tea' - which is a jazz era term, not one that originated with the Beats as is erroneously noted elsewhere @ the Urban Dictionary) to benzedrine (aka 'bennies'/amphetamine). The term sprang from the early jazz scene in 1920's/30's America.

Decades later, beer aficionados appropriated the term to refer to themselves (with a wry tip of the hat to it's original meaning).
Mezz Mezzrow, an early marijuana dealer, smoked his own product and was himself a hophead.

Someone who enjoys really hoppy beers, or drinks hoppy beers exclusively. Most likely this person is a beer-geek or craft-brew drinker.

Hops are what give beer the Citrusy, Piney, or sometimes what bring out the Herbal or Fruity flavors.
Man, that Stone Ruination IPA turned me into a true Hop-head.

A lover of all beers hoppy. A hophead espouses the merits of India Pale Ales, Russian Imperial Stouts, and other highly hopped beers. A hophead may even chew fresh hops in an attempt to quench his insatiable desire for hops. A hophead would sooner suffer castration than drink the typical BMC (Bud /Miller/Coors) swill.
<Beer Drinker #1> Wow, I just tried Three Floyds' Dreadnaught Imperial IPA. It's a hop orgasm in a bottle.
<Beer Drinker #2> You, sir, are a hophead.

Beer drinker who heavily prefers hop-dominated brews. Typically drinks IPAs or double IPAs. Because of this, rarely drinks Macro beers. The term itself (rather than the charachteristic) is almost certainly a progeny of the rise of micro- (now called craft-) brewing.
"That dude ONLY drinks IPAs; sneers at everything else; major hop head"
