As an avid absinthe enthusiast (I actually know a tremendous amount about absinthe%3B some might call it an obsession), I feel like stylistically, this mark is on point. However, I'm really confused by the color choice. Even the most abecedarian absinthe drinker would tell you that the color most associated with absinthe is green. La F%E9e Verte, The Green Fairy. There are some things you just don't take artistic liberty with, and I feel like the color of an absinthe logo is one of them. And yes, I know, the best absinthes being produced are actually clandetine La Bleus, which are actually clear (they don't run their distillate through a coloring phase with green herbs), but most, if not all people naturally associate absinthe with the color green.

At any rate, I floated this because I think the lockup as a whole is MF-ing phenomenal.

Thank you all!**@Jon: Cool to hear man. I know green is the colour that is associated with absinthe. But this is for something totally different, not for actual absinthe. I chose the name because people also link it with hallucinating, as a metaphor (Van Gogh is rumoured to have had some when cuttting of his ear), so I wanted the colour to stick to that theme too. From that point of view green just seems too obvious.

%5E Green blue combo would be more absinthe-ish %3B)

I think the color is accurate. I instantly related with the flashy hallucinogenic look, though green is it's main, this is really suitable!
