Default Grassy hops. What to do?

I picked a few of my cascades yesterday and noticed after drying in a dehydrator that many smell grassy. When I squeezed the hops however the cascade aroma still dominates.

Is that grassy smell going to linger in the beer if I use these? Should I toss 'em?

Thanks for your help!

maybe let some ripen a little longer, dry, and then reassess the aroma. it's a learning experience! hop on the harvest train!
