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.
