More Brett than IPA but an overall joy.
Appearance is a rich yellow-gold, a tad cloudy and moderate head.
Smell is diverse - rich with fruit but also teeming with musty yeast.
Taste is extraordinary. It's all at once sweet, hoppy, flavorful. A bit of fruit but not dominating.
Overall, incredibly well done brew from two legends. I hesitated because the last couple 3F one-offs were heavy on acetone and priced at $15, as is this one. But I'm now happy I've made multiple trips for bottles, as I suspected these two brewers wouldn't disappoint.

750 bottle poured into FFF Teku
A - Pours a medium golden body with a slight amber hue. Three finger off white head
S - This smells great. The Pineapple pops out at first, then the tropical fruit adds with a slight funk to finish. The piney hop character pairs well with the tropical fruit. No urine here
T - Follows the nose with the pineapple and fruit notes popping out. The slight funk is involved, but playing a back seat. Really great flavors going on.
M - Moderate carbonation but coats well.
O - I was blown away by this beer. The combination of the flavors works so well. I'm not sure if there is a difference due to bottle conditioning, but this in no way resembled a cat peeing on a pine tree. Happy to have another one to enjoy and would drink this all the time.

A - Smooth as velvet pour. Burnt orange color. 1.5 fingers of bright white, fluffy head that sticks around.
S - Brett is out front. Funky barnyard smell along with some sweet undertones. Then the hops come through. Pine, citrus. First time I've smelled these two scents in the same glass. Bravo!
T - Who'd a thought? Funky Brett and high alpha hops living in harmony. It's all there, and done oh so well. Not much malt in the profile. That's to be expected.
M - Smooth, creamy, velvety. Like buttah
O - A one off marvel. Two of the most respected breweries in the country collaborate, and good things happen. Make it a regular occurence, Nick and Omar.

Thanks to hopslam11 for sending this bottle down! Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Peg's snifter.
A: Very hazy orangish-gold with a half-finger of white head and only a small amount of visible carbonation.
S: Funky, barnyard and horse, wet grassy and tropical fruits with grapefruit and lemon hops as well. A light biscuit malt aroma lurks underneath.
T: Follows the nose – funky grassy barnyard, then a big pineapple hit, with citrus, dankness, and more wet hay. A dry bitterness in the hang with some tart funk on the exhale.
M: Medium body, carbonation sensation on the low side, and the alcohol is noticeable but seems well-integrated into the flavors.
O: Wow. This was really, really tasty. While not quite the same style, I did prefer Crooked Stave's Hop Savant to this one, but I found the Urine Trouble to have a lot more pineapple and citrus flavor, rather than more dominated by hay and grass tastes. Recommended.
As an aside, I didn't find any "cherry pie" flavors in the beer at all.

Really interesting beer thanks to rudzud for sharing. 7/22/13
Big fluffy fizzy fluffy soapy 2 finger head fades semi slowly with lots if messy lacing, mostly clear lemony yellow color.
Nose super fruity peach and apricot like, some tropical fruit like hops with mango and little papaya, nice Brett funk with little pineapple and juicy fruit, pineapple eventually really ramps.
Taste quite nice, big pineapple tropical fruit Brett and citrusy tropical hops, nice mild funk Brett, musty dank grapefruit pith and lemon rind, little grainy malt no real sweetness. Mild spicy bitterness, earthy hops. Long bitter hop finish, lots of pineapple and tropical fruit, earthy rind hops.
Mouth is med bod, nice carb.
