I was impressed with the fact that those hops sat out in a brown paper bag
in the heat and cold for several summers and winters. Then they still had
flavor and aroma components, it is just that those components have changed
into something unexpected.....

Not a scientist but since milk has little odor, cheese must get odor from added biology. Maybe you are smelling some little visitors

some of the science

I think with lambics this is an accepted and utilized practice....
I have a beer with cheesy hops fermenting ...its going into the
solera after the next harvest....along with some new bugs

I have yet to use aged hops in my lambic solera but I'm thinking some of the two pounds of Belma hops I bought would be a good candidate for aging. Not that I dislike them but I have so much of them compared to how quickly they are getting used.
