I've got some hops that a buddy gave me about 3 years ago that have stayed in the freezer the whole time. They are all pellet hops and have been opened and lost there Nitrogen seal numerous times. Are these hops a lost cause or should I attempt to use them?

I'm still working my way through the two pounds of Columbus I purchased three years ago. They live in the freezer in your basic freezer bag. Still working just fine.
