yes, but I've taken it from several plants... not just 4 :p of course it's much more... I said " I took some" beacouse I think that'a only 5-10% of the hops avaible on those hops trees....

they smell good, not very fruity... it's like smelling saaz or another clean hop...
It's not very strong, but i think it's just becouse it's still fresh! I'll make a small batch with taht hop and we'll see if they're good :D

Nice find, I wish that was growing near me. Since this is a photo thread I fixed your links.

AFter looking at them , i'd say they are in perfect shape for harvesting, they usually have a bit of browning to the tips.
