Default Hopunion mosaic hops gone bad?

I just opened a 1oz packet of hopunion mosaic hops bought from my LHBS. I don't have any prior experience with this hops, but the hop pellets in this packet barely have any aroma. I was expecting a lot more aroma based on what I have been reading about this hops.
Is it possible that the hop pellets in this bag have gone bad? I am not sure if I should add them to the brew?
Can any one with experience with this hops describe what I should expect?
thanks guys

They should have a ton of aroma. This hop is very aromatic. If you are not smelling them, you got a bad pack.

Notice any cheese'ish aroma? Can also smell slightly sour...

Signs of oxidized hops

To close out this thread: I talked to my LHBS. They explained that sometimes hopunion bags may have been damaged during transport (really small tear or puncture hard) that may have ruined the hops.
They replaced it with a new bag for free. This new bag was indeed very aromatic.
Thanks again for suggestions and replies.
