It's funny, Denny, I've always liked WLP001 just a tad better than Wy1056, because I thought it produced a cleaner, drier beer. I gave US-05 a good shot, probably made about 8 or 10 batches with it, but I'm just not a fan. I like both of the liquid Chico strains better.
After a while, I started to use the James Bond yeast WLP007 (which I also like better than Wy1098) for my IPAs and APAs because I find both of the American strains were almost too clean. I still occasionally go back to 1056 and 001 though.
