Default unidentified hops

My friend sent me these hops from Oregon that he picked wild. Anyone know what kind they are?

Look at the bottom of the page, I'm no expert so I cant say. Have you tried tasting a little of one? Great find, free is good.

There are no wild hops native to Oregon, so they are probably feral. Most likely Fuggles, Brewer's Gold or Cluster. That cone shape is too common to narrow it down further.
