Default Which IPA to Brew (DFH60 or Two Hearted)?

I'm stuck trying to decide whether to brew Yooper's DogFishHead 60 Minute clone or eschatz's Bells Two Hearted Ale clone. I love both of these IPAs and the threads for both recipes are great. I need some help deciding which way to go. Either way, I'll be doing partial mash with extract for a 5.5 gallon batch.

Can I please get some votes here?

Thanks!
Brad

Personally, I'd brew the Two-Hearted.

I'd go with Two-Hearted as well. I like it more than DFH 60 min.

Both are in the India Pale Ale category in the Recipes. Both are typically in the top ten threads too.
