Hey Guys, I have 2 bines that I'm not sure what they are. The COULD be centenial, but their tag faded since I planted them 2 years ago.

Any thoughts?

What do they smell like when you crush/roll a cone between your fingers? Centennial has a pretty distinct aroma.

I could run them through my home lab if you'd like. Just pick, dry, vac. seal and mail me about a pound of cones and I should be able to nail down the variety for you pretty easily

I'd say you have...

Free hops!

Throw them in an APA and enjoy!

Well, looking at hopunion's site, It might be nugget, which would be crazy because I planted 2 more nugget rhizomes this year.. hahah.

I've also got 2 cascade bines new this year and a zeus (HUGE CONES).
