Yazoo thinks they are galena and cascade, according to their facebook page.
Here's the story on Yazoo's blog:http://yazoobrew.blogspot.com/2012/09/some-freshly-picked-local-hops-heading.html
It's for their "Bells Bend Preservation Ale".

I talked with Eric at Bells Bend Farm directly via email and this is an exact quote from the email:
"We harvested the remaining hops for Yazoo last week. We have some in the fridge that I can get you, but the variety is unknown. They are an heirloom variety from E. TN that someone gave to us. They smell great."
