Default Brown Hops

So, I had a bunch of hops that I picked, I left them outside drying for too long, while waiting for all the aphids to leave the hops which they seemed to have been doing.

So now all the bugs are gone, but the cones are very brown. Like straight up brown, not like only the tips are brown, the entire cone.

So, if they're high Alpha acid hops, would they still be OK to use for the bittering hops? They are just packed with lupalin.

I don't want to just throw them out, but I don't want to mess up a batch of beer. So, has anybody used brown hops before?

Thanks guys!
