I feel like using old hops gives you the bitterness, but not the aroma and flavor

You nailed it there.  From the moment hops are harvested they begin to deteriorate. Careful handling with freezer temperatures and CO2 enviroment will slow deterioration, but will not halt the process. We loose aroma, flavor and bitterness it that order.

I don't know half of you half as well as I should, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
