Finally, Hop Cones

I have planted these rhizomes for a few years now.  This is the first time they have began to sprout hop cones.  I don't know what I was previously doing wrong or what I might be doing right this time but here they are.
 Without the acid content and cohumulone levels I won't brew with them.
They will most likely become potpourri in the fall.
New Session IPA is in the fermenter.
 I made a few changes to try making this beer better.
Gravity looks good at 1.053.  That's just where I want it.
I think pushing it lower would make it tough to get a good balance.
And balance is needed, even in an IPA.

Good beer to you.
