Hey all, I'm looking to brew a beer for a springtime birthday softball game. Thinking about spring beers, and tasting the amazing citrus flavors in my latest IPA, led me to the following recipe. Things I'm wondering about:

1) Is this the right amount of honey malt to get some residual sweetness/honey flavor without overdoing it?
2) Do I need any zest, or will these hops in these amounts give me plenty of citrus/tropical flavors on their own?
3) This is my first wheat, but I've recently gone BIAB. This removes the need for something like rice hulls, right?
4) Anything else?

Style: American Wheat or Rye Beer
TYPE: All Grain

Looks like a really interesting recipe. I am also looking to make a citrusy wheat and was going to try Sorachi but decided against it after hearing about a dill flavor, especially when using it as a bittering addition.

I'm really curious to hear how it turns out. Please post up when done!
