What do you mean when you say "sloppy finish"? I really enjoy IPAs, and I really enjoy the dogfish head (it's dogfish head
, mosc!). I understand that some IPAs are not very good, I've had a number of them that were very hoppy but felt hoppy for the sake of being hoppy, rather than the hoppiness adding to/complimenting the taste of the beer (unhappy Mozilla spell check is VERY UNHAPPY!).
My favorite IPA, and quite possibly my favorite beer, is the Breckenridge 471, by the way.
