Help identifying Hops variety

I bought this hops plant a few years ago from Baldur-Garten. The description from them is, "Wild Hops, not suitable for beer". I'm not sure if I believe their description though. I got a decent enough harvest from them this year and was wondering if anybody wanted to try to identify the variety for me.

I am considering brewing a batch of beer (after a 15+ year hiatus) and these are waiting in the freezer ready to go unless somebody can convince me otherwise. It would be even better if I knew what they were.

On a related note, does anybody have an identifiable hop variety and would want to give me a few rhizomes next spring?

Re: Help identifying Hops variety

Had a look online, wild hops is used a lot for brewing

On a side note (in case you have a dog), ngesting hops can apparently be very dangerous for them.

Good & happy brewing
