Its from my zeus breed. had a few fall off when I was changing how I was hanging them (made it so I could lower the bines as they grow to get more growth) anyways, its got what appears to be a flower head on the end, maybe thats normal, I see it on a few cones. It also has leaves sprouting out of the cone itself. how weird is that.. first year growing btw, so maybe this is common. *shrug*

Here is my trellis btw, have 8 varieties. Cascade, Zeus, Tea Maker, Magnum, Williamette, Centennial, Nugget & Chinook

Zeus and Tea Maker are monsters.. Tea Maker didn't have a lot of bines, but it had one huge bine, thick as my pinky. Zeus is growing crazy and has those cones like that freak one, big as my thumb.

Next year I'm getting rid of 4 varieties, probably Magnum, Williamette, Nugget and maybe Tea Maker. Just so i can focus on the 4 C's (Zeus is part of CTZ group ie. Columbus, Tomahawk & Zeus) - So if anyone is in Omaha NE area and interested in buying some of those Rhizomes, shoot me a PM. and I'll get in touch come spring. 2$ each for all but Tea Maker, that one is 4$ each and I'll try to get you big ones, more than 6 inches and as close to 1 foot as possible.. That'ss half what I paid for mine btw. You just need to drive down to Plattsmouth to pick them up
