Just what I noted earlier that they seemed less brite. I rubbed one in my hands and think they are fine.

typically cones are dried to 75-80% weight loss. 65% should be ok, but you could dry them a little more.

Why? Everything I've read to this point (which is not THAT much) has lead me to believe that fresh-frozen hops keep fine. I've done this in the past with no problems that I am aware of? I've never used a any of the fresh-frozen hops more than a few months later but I still have some in bags from past harvests and will likely smell and make a tea from them to see how they help up.
