Very nice haul, jealousy growing....
I wish I would have snagged one that probably would have helped, oh well I'm sure they will work good for flavor and aroma hops so it's no biggie if I don't ID them, I think I'm going to do a SMASH with them just to get an idea or their characteristics.

SMaSH sounds like a good idea. They look too huge to be cascades. Other than that I've no idea. Good find!

Great cones, and nice truck! If i didn't already have 2 classics to restore...

Take lots of pictures of the cones and plants, and search online for how to identify. I think I saw some sites before that showed how.

I guess I didn't guess the wet hop weight right because dry I ended up with 3lbs of hops!! Hopefully they have a good flavor cause I'm going to be using them a lot.

3 lbs? Nice haul!

Hopefully at some point you can identify them.

I brewed an IPA today with 10 oz of leaf Cascade from this years harvest. What a wonderfull smell!

Definitely do a SMaSH that would allow the characteristics of the hops to show through.

Or send some my way and I'll give you an educated guess.

It kind of looks like my Magnum...but I agree with Joe Camel, post a picture of the leaf and we may well identify it!

What is a SMASH? Also... I put some hops that were a little brown in with the rest when I was Vacuum sealing... is that bad?
