Mad Squirrel is a brewery that knows how to brew up some serious craft beer magic, and $umo beer is no exception.

Named after the two heavyweight hops that battle it out in this brew, Summit and Mosaic, $UMO is a force to be reckoned with in the world of craft beer. From the moment you take a sip, $UMO will wrestle your taste buds with a bold and complex flavour combination that will leave you wanting more.

The flavour profile of $UMO is a masterclass in balance, blending the tropical fruitiness of the Mosaic hops with the dank, herbal notes of the Summit hop.

This brew is not for the faint of heart – it’s a bold and intense experience that will leave you feeling invigorated and satisfied.

One of the things that set $UMO apart from other beers is its ability to evolve as you drink it. The initial bitterness gives way to a more complex and nuanced kick as you work your way through the pint, revealing new layers with each sip. It’s the kind of beer that you can spend an entire evening with, savouring each and every sip and discovering new flavours along the way.

Visually, $UMO is a thing of beauty, with a deep golden colour that glows in the light. The head is thick and frothy, sticking around for a while before dissipating and leaving behind a lacing on the glass. It’s a beer that looks as good as it tastes, and you’ll feel like a true connoisseur sipping on it. In terms of mouthfeel, $UMO is smooth and creamy, with just the right amount of carbonation to keep things interesting. The body is medium, not too heavy or too light, making it the perfect beer to enjoy on its own or paired with your favourite food.

At the end of the day, $UMO is a beer that demands your attention and respect. It’s a brew that will make other beers look weak and insignificant by comparison, standing tall and proud as the last beer standing. So if you’re looking for a truly epic craft beer experience, look no further than $UMO. It’s a beer that will leave you feeling like a champion.
