I was thinking about this some more and I think either yeast can be used for a super clean almost "lager-like" strain and both work well at cold temps but that the difference is WY1007 will accentuate the malt better and WLP001/W1056 accentuated hops better. Also, along that note, the dry version US-05 is not as clean as the liquid version and has a more harsh profile that can be hidden quite well by American hoppy ales or stouts and the like but does not sub as well for alts and mock lagers even at cold temps.

I think I could say that WLP001 is THE cleanest ale yeast available today. The key to this yeast is pitching cool 58-62F, then controlling the ferm temp by keeping less than 68F. YMMV.

Have your tried Denny's Favorite from WYeast?  That is even cleaner.
