ChiTown Pier Pale Ale

This 5.6% ABV American pale ale is from the Chicago Beer Company and is brewed for them in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. It is available in the greater Chicago area and I picked it up at a Trader Joe's in Chicago.

The beer pours a dark yellow golden in color, the slightest bit hazy. There is nearly an inch of thick, white, foamy head. The aroma is citrusy and toasted. The taste is citrusy, much lemon, light toasted wheat, with a fairly bitter finish. This is very close to being very good, but falls frustratingly short. Lots of potential, not quite there.
