Default keg dregs - drink or dump?

I have almost finished a keg of pale ale which was terrific. I'm probably near the bottom because the keg is very light, and the last pint I just poured has hop particels etc. it in and is much cloudier than previous pores.

It tastes okay but I'm wondering if I should drink or dump the dregs?

I drink 'em to the end. The last few might be cloudy, but usually they taste fine.

have you trimmed your dip tube? i trim 5/8" off the bottom of my tube so that i leave all the goo on the bottom. at that length you're only leaving a few oz behind and i think it's well worth it.
