Default Hops growing but unknown what kind

The property I work on has some hops growing there but the woman who planted them doesn't remember what kind they exactly are. Is there anywhere where I could find out exactly what kinda hops I have on my hands?

No, not without a gene scan. You can narrow the possibilities based on leaf and sidearm configurations, cone shape and where the cones grow. Not easy. I'd just make a simple pale ale with them and see how you like it.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
