I returned from being gone for the weekend to find my Nugget looking very ill and the Cascade beginning to show the same symptoms. I haven't seen this issue before, anyone have any ideas?

Leaves are yelling with large areas of brown/rust colour. This basically occurred within the last two days as they looked fine on Friday. The following are two photos of the problem:

Fungus? Deficiency?

These are second year hop plants that had been doing very well up until now.

Because I can't find anything to suggest differently, I'm thinking water (extremely wet or very dry) or nitrogen or iron (or any combination of the three).
