Default Nutrient deficiency in hop cones?

Hey everyone,

My cascade plants are making some massive cones and I'm looking for a great harvest for these first year plants. They have really taken off but I'm concerned the hops are possibly showing signs of iron deficiency as the cones are lighter green towards the tips. They are not mature enough yet to be due to drying out, I'm just wondering if they won't produce the proper lupulin content if they are showing possible signs of deficiency?

Or should I just not worry about it? There's got to be 100 between the 3 plants, and they are still just starting to get buds on the side shoots.
