Centennial worth transplanting?

Ok, I had two first year Centennial rhizomes this year. The 101f heat in May killed one. The other survived but barely and it now looks good but has only grown to 8 inches high. Should I assume that...

Just an fyi to everyone for future reference. 1 day of 101f heat in the Pac Northwest most certainly can kill a 1st year rhizome. 1 of my zomes with a 10 inch high bine died, the other zome barely...

I don't think it matters. The important thing is that fermentation is complete so you are not losing hop aroma to co2 escaping. So just make sure it is complete and then dry-hop for 1-2 weeks.
