As you said, it's probably got a stuck float. If stored without draining and fuel petcock turned off, gas evaporates from carb bowl and sticks float down, allowing fuel to flow all the time.
Solution: Remove carb and fully clean. Carb dip can be effective if left long enough but it will not clean out totally closed-up holes or clogged passages. Cleaners can only dissolve varnish if they can get to it and totally clogged passages won't allow cleaner to flow to where it's needed. Pros use a hot bath of cleaner and/or ultrasonic cleaners.
