Most of there stuff isnt hopped. doesnt look like that one is. I know that alot of companys that also make kits have hopped and unhopped versions of the same extract.

You dont want to use real hops? The prehopped stuff just basically adds a bight to it, no real hop taste. I guess you could look for hop oil or tablets

you will need the hops or it will just have a lemon taste and not just a C-hop taste I would guess

Well, the point of the hops is to provide bitterness to counteract the unbearable sweetness of the malt. If you don't add hops, you'll have a sweet syrup-y drink, I think.

That page's menu lists hopped malts separately. So, I'd say no.

I suppose you could brew now, but only 4 gallons. Then when you get your hops, boil them for 60 minutes in one gallon of water & add it to the fermenter. That limits the IBU to less than 20, but plenty for a wheat.

If I had wheat malt and no hops... well first, I'd shed a tear. Then I'd head to the supermarket for some ginger. About 3 oz is good for my tastes.
