I didn't get very many this year, but I think I left them on the vine too long. What do you think?

They look overly dried out to me. If they smell off, I wouldn't use them. Or, save them for years and use them in a wild beer.

I left em on too long also. Use em in the boil not to dry hop and its all good.
