Default Is this normal?

Hey guys just went to dry hop my rye ipa after pretty intense fermentation and seen this at the top...not exactly what i'm used to...just want to confirm this isn't bacteria?

Thanks

That's just the remains of krausens. Some yeast look like that. I call them "Krausen Kurdels."

Normal stuff. Krausen, maybe some hopgunk for color.

Had something on my Oberon clone and asked the same question. Beer turned out great.
