I had a SNPA this weekend that looked very similar, except the particles seemed to be finer. After reading this thread I think it was probably hop particles. Tasted fine by the way!

Wouldn't hop particles get filtered out? But yeast from bottle conditionioning eventually flocculate and clump up?

ouch, that sucks. Did you taste it at least? Coming from a homebrew community I would have just tasted it at least, looks like some of my more careless brews where I kicked up a lot of sediment while raking to my bottling bucket.

One of the few things I remember my biology teacher in high school saying: "when in doubt, throw it out."

It sounds like you're in doubt...

Yeah, I tasted it. It tasted fine but I couldnt risk a stomach ache. Besides, it looked gross!
Also, it was just a single can I picked up at the liquor store. No big deal.

My mantra has always been, "when in doubt, start taking bets. because you can stand to make alot of money if you are right, if you are wrong, you'll be dead anyways and won't owe anyone anything"

wuss
Years ago a friend came into some old homebrew from an acquaintance. Knowing my affinity for beer he gave it to me. It was obviously "well conditioned" (i.e. old) in corked wine bottles and had quite a bit of sediment. Being the adventurous sort, I figured what the heck? A few of the bottles had gone bad (of course I didn't drink those), but all-in-all it wasn't half bad. Besides, sometimes the risk itself is the reward.
