Taste and smell?
They smell kind of piney and grassy... like grass not pot.
I'll dry some out and se if that changes the smell.
Maybe I should try and smoke some too.

1. Dry them out
2. Roll 'em up
3. Report back

Those ain't hops

Indica maybe, but that is one leaf not many and they're too small and the flowers are wrong.

I know the flowers look like "buds" but this plant is a vine so it is not cannabis.
I'm going with japanese hops based on the leaf shape and this pic I pulled off this site http://www.nps.gov/plants/alien/fact/huja1.htm.

REAL noticeable 'hairs'/stamen? Quite purple.

Still seems like hops from the vegetation, but the flowers are awesome!

Dude, if you DO burn some, at least let it dry slow and age a couple months.

Helluva coincidence to have that right next to your hops.

That's not ganja. Female flowers of the dank plant bud RIGHT in between the main stem and the petiole (leaf stem) just below the internode. The picture you posted shows the flowers actually having a peduncle (where the flower/ovary "sits") which marijuana flowers do not have. I'm 99.9% sure those are not cannabis sativa/indica. If you try to inhale that your throat will be sore for a day or two.

<RANT>
And can anybody answer me why whenever I post something about ganja, even if it's relevant to the topic, it's immediately deleted and I'm warned but others can talk freely about it and even post pictures of some SERIOUS pictures of gigantic colas? It's always the excuse that "we don't talk about illicit or illegal activities" but everybody looks the other way when there are CLEARLY people who brew more than 200 gallons a year...
</RANT>

Looking at the plant in my backyard I never once thought it was cannabis. I can see how the cones might look like "buds" in the photos but if you look at the whole plant it is some type of hop.
What I am trying to figure out by posting this here is

A What type of hop

B Was the color brought on by stress from me replanting after wilting from too much rain

C Is this just a wild japanese hop plant that happened to come up near where I replanted the rhizome (which presumably died)

D or Thyme Garden sent me the wrong type of hop (a wild or uncultivated type).

Ah gotcha. Ya know, it looks very very much like the japanese hops image you posted just with purple flowers. Here are my three predictions:

1) It's a japanese maple and the purple is caused either by harsh conditions (usually cold) or a mutation
2) It's a bine from your rhizome and the purple is caused by harsh conditions or a mutation
3) It's japanese hops like the image you posted and the purple is caused by late season/harsh conditions
