Brewing Beer: Fresh hopped California IPA

So if you brew an IPA and fresh hop it with frozen hops cones and then forget about it for about six months, is it still called a fresh hopped IPA? I don' t know, but, I like it! Kegged it on Friday night and shared a few pints yesterday with Daren around the fire. And to think that the hops I used in the secondary came from plants I started growing about this time last year. I wonder what the harvest will be like this year. The cascade plants only yielded five ounces of green hops last year. I'm expecting tons more this year now that the plants have established themselves. They're already about ten inches tall or more!
