Yeah, those late hop additions are a bit out of style as you don't want the hop flavor/aroma to overwhelm the maltiness you are looking for in an Oktoberfest. But those will fade over time. Wait until harvest season (September/October) to drink them and I'm sure they'll be stellar.
Also, very surprised it got as low as 1.014 when mashed at 158-160. I guess that can be attributed to the attenuation power of US-05
