Crispin should be easy to find, and it's a step up from Angry Orchard, for sure.

 

I do not have a very good palette for ciders -- they taste kinda similar to me. I prefer dry ones to sweet ones, though.

Big fan of ciders. I'm not so sure I'd consider Crispin a step up from Angry Orchard though. Crispin has the various specialty bottles, most of which suck, and limited releases but their standard offerings aren't as good as Angry Orchard or Woodchuck's imo. Plus, Angry Orchard does two specialty bottles, Strawman and Iceman, that are both better than most of the specialty bottles Crispin has to offer. I really only like Woodchuck for their pumpkin seasonal these days.

 

Now in reference to the shocktop of ciders comment, I have yet to find a commercial cider that rivals any of the locally produced ciders I've had. Seems to me unlike craft beer, the craft cider market hasn't really come into its own yet and you still have to go to the source pretty much to see the cool things cider makers are doing. Around here, Millstone is getting pretty big and will hopefully receive wider distribution this coming year. They produce all kinds of ciders + meads ranging from ordinary to extremely experimental (i.e. fish pepper + smoked apples aged in oak). That said, if you want something that tastes like high quality apple cider that happens to be alcoholic, I'd recommend trying to find some Downeast Cider. They're brewed in MA but I think they get decent distribution.
