Bees can get aggressive at times but (for instance when protecting honey during a dearth or during cooler weather if you don't give ample notice, in the way of some before entering the hive). If they are as aggressive as you say and this isn't a one-time behavior then your best solution is to re-queen. But you will need to find the old/aggressive queen in order to kill her. An alternative would be to find/kill the queen and merge the hive with a weaker hive (in case you have a hive the isn't up to snuff for wintering).
