Default Is this a Mutant or something else

Hi I just saw this guy and I was wondering if he was a mutant or having gender issues.






Thanks

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

Don't see any boy parts, so I'm guessing "mutant"...

Cheers!

Could it have been pollinated by some male in the area? Plants do strange things when they're fertilized...

looks like an angel cone, which are common in some strains of hops moreso than others. You have a picture of the tip of the cone? Hard to tell if those "hairs" at the end of the cone are just left over hairs from the burr or it that is some other sort of growth anomaly. "Male parts" are distinctly different, so my guess is it's just an angel cone.
