The Ghost of the James pays homage to the countless vessels and the waterman that once called Virginia’s James River home. Remnants of this nautical history still exist today just outside Norfolk and are known as the James River Ghost Fleet. With an anchor of dry hops, this crisp, refreshing, summertime beer goes down smooth with a soft, rounded-out blend of hops backed with a slight caramel sweetness. What sets this beer apart from other pale ales is the highly aggressive dry-hopping method using all four hops, which gives the beer an exploding bouquet of fresh hop aroma and flavor without all the bitterness.
