Default Perle Hopps seem off, can someone verify w. picture.

Hey guys im in Hungary, brewing away, picked up a few ounces of Perle Hopps, but it seems to be an off green almost into a brown color with a faint smell to them... I have yet to brew or encounter all different hop varieties, but this seems
a bit old to me if not off just yet.... I mean i remember my first batch , amarillo, and ekg, and all the other hopps i have smelled were amazing... with this I have to lean in to get a good whiff.
I know the color is going to look different on everyones computer, and the camera lighting wasn't "studio" but here is a picture. here in hungary there are only two online shops you can get brewing supplies, I have always ordered from the main one, great quality....but this time this other one was the only one that had Perle Hops, so i gave them a try...now i think im regretting it. The cost is quite high here in budapest. too. so i would miss the dollars spent as well if they are deemed crap.
..
thanks guys!!!

They don't look too brown to me. And color might not indicate they are old or anything. I have had hops that were very fresh that had a brown hue to them so it might just depend on the variety.
