What's on the underside? Little guys and webs? Looks like spider mites to me.

I hate those little devils! I have them on one of our bean plots currently and am just going to pull them up.
You trying to be organic with the plants or full on nuke style?

I have tried using a water wash and rubbing alcohol and cooking oil remedy in the past but they are tough!

Here's two links that came up right away. Warning the second link is to a cannabis growing information site and you may not want to be there depending uipon your environment. But I would suspect that those guys are fairly serious about protecting plants and will have some good answers.

That's funny you say that I have beans growing by my hops and the leaves look the same. I just did a spray with the hose they seem to be gone but I'm sure they will be back very shortly . No I'm not trying to be organic but do not want to drop a nuke. Maybe I'll just try some chemical warfare on those little guys. Thanks for the info I'll check out both sites . My plants are not worth as much as a cannabis plant but I'm going to protect them like one haha thanks again
