Hi I am looking for a solid, hopped up american wheat beer recipe.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I have searched but can't come up with much...

Thanks!!!

I love the Norther Brewer Weaten Beatdown. Very good.

Depends on how hoppy you want it. If you want APA/IPA-like hoppiness, then I agree try the NB Wheaten Beatdown.

One of my favorite recipes to brew is my honey wheat ale. Mt Hood hops for bittering and flavor, orange blossom honey and Centennials added late in the boil. It comes out amazing, IMO. You definitely taste the Centennials, but it's not over-the-top hoppy.

Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale is a very hoppy wheat beer that is absolutely delicious! I have a 6 gallon batch of it in the fermenter right now! Check out thebrewingnetwork for the clone recipe.

My fave is East End Wheat Hop but they don't bottle it or distro very far. Southern Tier Hop Sun or Oberon are nice. I just made my own, crossing my fingers. Also never had Gumball Head but really want to try it.

+1 on on Three Floyds Gumballhead. I made a clone of it recently and turned out fantastic. Very close to the real thing. Gumballhead is hard to find right now because of it's generous use of Amarillo hops. Are you looking for an AG recipe?

Luckily, i have to local bars that almost always have Gumballheaon tap. I've been wanting to do the Gumballhead clone but subbing in some Citra or sorachi ace hops added at the end.
