Default Microbrewery keg filled with yeast?

Hello all,

I'm new to kegging and this is my first time using my kegerator for any commercial keg. I bought it yesterday from mu local microbrewery. I set it in my kegerator to cool and settle overnight and tapped it tonight. The first pint I pulled was foam, no big deal, the second was almost complete yeast. I continued to pore beers 2-7 and all seemed to be mostly filled with yeast. The beer started to clear towards 6 and 7 but there is only mild hop aroma and a wicked yeast smell. Its usually a great IPA with a strong hop aroma. What happened?! Did I get the last runnings from the fermentor? This can't be normal, right?!

Take a look at the pic

I boiled and sanitized water and a jar this morning! I'll post a picture of the yeast I harvested once it re-settles. I called the microbrewery and i'm going to return the keg this afternoon.

And if they don't replace it, for you, don't buy any more of their beer.
