Default Red, slimy goo at the end of fermentation?

Has anybody seen this: it's a deep red (almost amber), oily, slimy goo that I found at the bottom of my cylindriconical fermenter after I racked into kegs. I cold conditioned at 1 degree celcius for about a week previous to racking. I didn't see it in the beer at any stage, but I noticed it when I opened the bottom valve to the fermenter one all the beer was out and I was draining . It tasted bland (not good nor bad), but it smelled like hops, is there any chance this is concentrated hop oil? Or was that my imagination?

Weird. Was it translucent or opaque?

I've had a clear version of that drop from the perimeter of my carboy when I kegged in 90deg heat after a 5 day cold crash. I didn't have the desire (or balls) to taste it.

Pretty opaque, interesting, not sure what it could be, I guess I'll keep on eye on it to see if it happens again... ALSO, forgot to mention it was an orange wheat beer, and I ground up dried orange peels and corriander and put that it, perhaps it's orange oil? That could make more sense...
