I stopped by Whole Foods Monday night and drifted by their sandwich grill, where they have a list of rotating drafts. Just in is Crispin on tap. I got a sample and in a fit of sanity bought a growler and filled it w/ 40 oz. I've been sampling every night, and every night it gets better.

I don't remember WHAT is in their tap (WH), but Crispin only makes a couple recipes, and only a couple are listed as available in draft.

I like it lots, with its floral scent and apple flavor. It's not sweet by any means, but it's not really dry, and definitely not "beery".

Nice on tap, and I hope that it comes back often after this shipment is out.

On their shelves, they have the Crispin "Honey Crisp" "cloudy cider". I don't know whether this is the same thing that they have on tap, but I hope to sample it next week after my 40 is up.
I'm attaching a picture from the cold case. Also in the picture are the every great JK's Scrumpy, and also the every disgusting JK's Solstice. Gasoline as a chaser is the only way that I can think of the Solstice being drinkable.
Oh my gosh, but cider's neat.
Taste's so sweet, it can't be beat.
Good in the cold or in the heat.
Oh my gosh, but cider's neat!

I got to try Crispin Honey Crisp a couple weeks ago. Very light with a nice apple and honey flavor.

You may want to try a wandering aengus as well. Very nice ciders.

I had never had a cider I liked before they were in my local store sampling their stuff. I recommend them highly. they do cost a premium though.
