In my opinion, the second one reads deliciously. Some extra grains to work with also making it a little more interesting. I also like the yeast choices on both. Good Luck and I am sure either will do you justice.

IMO the malt bill from the second and the hop schedule from the first. i am a big fan of more hops later in the boil with less than twenty minutes left in the boil. big smooth hop flavor and aroma.
