I've got one too - used it to transfer from primary to secondary with hops in it (Randaliser), but not sure it gave off any hope aroma/flavour at all. Was more useful filled with rice hulls as a filter from FV to bottling bucket. Mind, since I started crash-cooling I don't find I need it.
The real benefit from this will come when I get a plate chiller as I'll be able to use the hops both to add flavour/aroma and also as a trub-filter.
