Definitely hop shoots.Last year I planted a centennial rhizome and when they sprouted they were green and leafy. Today I found this where I planted it. It doesn't look at all like it did last year but it looks like sprouted hops when I googled itView attachment 193169

Well, if you want to be that way!I completely disagree...you should steam them and then soak them in butter with a little salt. Way better.
