This is disgusting...is this an infection?

So I almost puked after looking at this. This has been sitting in the primary for 17 days. For the record this is the batch that I wrote about here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/why-...-hobby-344691/
I wasn't able to filter out my hops either.

Just tasted it, which I can't believe I did. It tastes very good at first but then it has a bitter after taste. It's an Imp Hef, it's got that Hef flavor but no banana and clove tastes. It smells like all my other batches. I took a sample, the temp was 69 and here is a pic of the reading. The SG is 1083 and the FG is 1020.

On second smell, I do smell alcohol.

So this is the same beer 12 days later. This looks so gross. Should I try racking it to a secondary?
