Not retired at all, still current on Sixpoints site and available. On tap at the White Oak Tavern, one of the better near session IPAs out there. Best of the flight for the night.

An all-around decent IPA. Although it's currently listed as retired, I still see sixers of this floating around local shops. I recall the first time I took a whiff of the Tiger; it was at my 2013 fantasy baseball draft. The highlight of that evening, albeit not the beer, was grabbing Matt Harvey in the late-late rounds. Better yet, to sounds of "who is this guy?" Clearly they soon enough found out about the Metropolitan flame-thrower. Here's hoping he has a successful rebound in 2015, and let's all hope that Sixpoint truly hasn't retired this beer. Perhaps they're modifying it. In summary, this IPA is decent - nothing more or less. If someone was on the fence about converting to craft and wanted something that was not entirely off-putting, I may offer them this. Cheers.
