Default Hop identification help

Hey guys. New to the forum. Just curious if you could help me identify a variety of hops. I got some rhizomes from a local herb garden, but the variety wasn't listed. the garden has been there at least since 1995... don't know how long the hops have been there, but probably since the beginning.

Time for pictars!!!








leaves...




they smell different than both my cascades and chinooks. nugget perhaps?


pictures of my chinooks...





and pictures of my hop yard (these were taken at the end of July)...







any thoughts? thanks guys!

Not Nugget. Those cones are too long and narrow for nugget. My nuggets are very compact and round. I recommend taking a sample to a homebrew shop or brewery and asking some of the experts.

Good luck!

The third picture of cones reminds me of the Zues that I grew here for the first time this year, and the leaves are definately similar. Zues is grouped together with Tomahawk and Columbus as "one" variety grown on different farms. Could be...... My Zues smelled a little skunky from the get but produced a tremendous amount of very large cones for the plant's size (1.5 oz. dried from a plant that got about six feet tall). Lupulin level, color, and aroma should help narrow it. Most of the ultra-high AA% hops grown in the US seem to have a bit of skunkiness to them from my experience. HTH

Hallertauer Magnum has huge cones like that. Do any of the cones have tiny leaves (angels) in them? Very common with Magnum.

My Zues had these as well as my cascade this year david.

david_42 seems to know his stuff so I'd suspect magnum as well OP.

Any hop can go angel, but it's common for Magnum.
