Default Is this bad?

I went out to the garage today to dry hop my latest batch and found the airlock had somehow fallen off and the following (pictures below) floating on a thin layer on the top. Is it infected? Am I screwed? What should I do?

That does look a little suspect. How long has it been in the fermentor? I'd pull out a little sample and see how it tastes.

It's been in there about four weeks total. That said, I checked it last week and everything looked fine.

Pull a sample and see how it tastes. If it tastes fine, let it ride. If it's starting to go funky or sour, then consume it quickly

Fascinating. I haven't seen a pellicle like that before, but that sure looks like bug tracks...

Doesn't look appealing, but let us know how it tastes.
