I tried one of their seasonals, Yellowcard APA (American Pale Ale), which turned out to be an excellent choice.

Served unfiltered, this is orange in color with a light hoppy aroma as the glass greets your nose. Going down with a creamy, with a lacy glass cling, it has a light, sweet nose and a rolling hoppy tang that lingers on the finish. There is a soft, herbal quality here that blends magically with the creamy sweetness. This is an absolutely wonderful brew and an unexpected surprise. While certainly not extreme, it's subtle, complex, and balanced.

Because it's a seasonal, I don't know how long it will be on tap or if it will return, but if you're on hand, do not miss a chance to try it ... and make sure you try it first, before throwing other flavors on your palate. Give it a couple good sips to sink in and enjoy.
