Yeah, I was having trouble finding a nice resting spot for the code. And you're totally right about the upside down spade, going to make those changes this weekend. . . Thanks for the feedback, it is appreciated!

I have no talent and this is my first label, but I thought this was a good idea for a high gravity beer and I like it.

Thanks. I searched but didn't find the reference in any other beer names. That surprised me given the doctor's description of the changes in Gage:

The equilibrium or balance, so to speak, between his intellectual faculties and animal propensities, seems to have been destroyed. He is fitful, irreverent, indulging at times in the grossest profanity (which was not previously his custom), manifesting but little deference for his fellows, impatient of restraint or advice when it conflicts with his desires, at times pertinaciously obstinate, yet capricious and vacillating, devising many plans of future operations, which are no sooner arranged than they are abandoned in turn for others appearing more feasible. A child in his intellectual capacity and manifestations, he has the animal passions of a strong man. Previous to his injury, although untrained in the schools, he possessed a well-balanced mind, and was looked upon by those who knew him as a shrewd, smart businessman, very energetic and persistent in executing all his plans of operation. In this regard his mind was radically changed, so decidedly that his friends and acquaintances said he was "no longer Gage."[11]


Seems perfect for a high gravity beer to me!

When I saw the image I was definitely thinking "Impaled Pale Ale". But I'm sure it's already been done many times.

Umm, what happens to those of us who already have a luxurious coat of chest hair? Maybe some up top!

Awesome label

Threw this together real quick for a hefeweizen I'm brewing tomorrow. Got the idea from a t-shirt. Of course, on the shirt it was spelled "WISE"
Plan on putting the tasting notes on the right when it's ready.
