Default 1st Year Container Hops

I live in Missouri, yet despite the drought conditions and 14+ days of over 100 degrees, my hops have done extremely well in their containers. My question is whether I should cut back some of the vine or just allow nature to take its course. I will most likely plant them in the ground next year but wonder if cutting them back is the proper way to go.

just let them be the first year; they need a chance to establish good roots.
