Default hop identification????

Just wondering if anyone can help a novice identify some fresh picked hops for me. Wife got them from a friend and I'm thinking about a wet hopped IPA when I get home to them....wife's friend had no clue just thought they were pretty....thanks from Olympia, WA

Do the bracts curl up & out a little on the larger cones too? If so, my guess would be Nugget or maybe Willamette; but I'm far from an expert on hops.
Regards, GF.

There are also some ornamental virieties that have little lupulins for flavor/aroma. Would the friend know what they are? Try rubbing a cone between your hands & take a wiff. I do that with herbs.

Thanks for the info. I'm away from home and my wife doesn't share the same interest.
