Default Would you keg/drink this

Brewed 10 gal of chinook ipa 3/24/12. Kegged 5 shortly after it finished and the other 5 has been sitting idle since today when I decided it was time to keg it. Pulled the lid off the fermenter and this is what it looked like. What would you do. Is it ok or apparently not?

Taste it and go from there. If it tasted funky, I would bottle it.

Another thing, if it tastes ok, most if not all of the aroma will be gone, you will need to dry hop again.

Plan was to throw hops in the keg and roll with it but after seeing that I'd rather not waste the hops. Gonna have to drink a little liquid courage before I sample this witches brew

Honestly, it doesn't look bad to me. Only a taste will tell, even if it is funky,I would bottle it and forget about it for a while.
