I have a similar question about my first year Willamette Hops. I think they may have been on the bine a bit too long, since they were already a bit dry when I picked them (compared to my Zeus.) They feel dry enough to bag and freeze, but they have a grassy aroma that is not that similar to the store bought Willamette hops I have bought. They didn't have much aroma on the bine either. I don't know if I want that to be the flavor/aroma of my beer.
Am I just being paranoid or did I pick them too late?
