Default Fing Hail Ruined My HOPS!!

Just wanted to rant a little, we had a fairly decent sized hail storm that tore my hops a new one. I had little cones starting to form and everything then all of a sudden wham hail knocked off all the cones and about 85% of the leaves. Whats the outlook on this?

They'll likely pull through for next year.

I have given up hope for a harvest from mine this year and have changed my focus on getting them as healthy as I can for a, hopeful, better start next year.
