Default 1st Year Cascade Cones?

I planted two Cascade rhizomes this spring. They've done very well thus so far (8 ft and climbing), as they've had plenty of water, drainage, compost and fish emulsion. Just today I noticed what appear to be spiny buds forming on one of the bines. They look different from the other buds that just turn into other bines. Did I luck out and start to form a few cones my first season?

They are starting to form buds. My Willamette's did that last year. Pretty cool.
