    I love Three Floyds Gumballhead and Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin' and a local brewery where I live makes 10 Speed Hoppy Wheat (Bloomington Brewing) and I was trying to find others that taste similar. I don't like wheat beers, but love them hopped up. Does anyone have suggestions?

    I really love Boulevard 80 Acre Hoppy Wheat. Little Sumpin' Sumpin' is one of my favorites as well.

    If you can trade for Trillium Pier, you won't regret it.

    A go-to of mine is Schlafly's Yakima Wheat. Little bit of hop bite in a solid wheat, great for an afternoon outside, and cans!

    Fortunate Islands from Modern Times. They only distribute in SoCal and the Bay Area right now, but it fits the style that you're looking for and is damn tasty. If you ever do a trade with someone out here, ask them to toss a few in for you.

    Agree with the above, Fortunate Islands is awesome. The best of the style I've had an low ABV as well. Of course, Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin' and Little Sumpin' Extra and Wild are also awesome.

    Russell White Rabbit from Vancouver is unreal, it has a perfect hop balance for the hefe and they used the right hops which make it a delicious wheat IPA

    Little Sumpin' Extra is probably my favorite. Seasonal, though. Seek it out now if you can.

    When in Vermont, Chasing Rabbits by Burlington Beer Company fits the bill and is quite good. It's readily available as well.

    I also live in Indy. I know North Peak has Vicious which is a wheat IPA, but I haven't had it to say it's good or not.

    For a beer available at stores to most on here, Boulevard 80 Acre - like others have said.

    Fortunate Islands is my favorite by far. Look for a hoppy wheat with Citra and Amarillo.

    You might like Arcadia's Rapunzel Pale Ale. I think Arcadia just recently started distro in Indiana again, so you may be able to easily find it. I just noticed it on tap at the pub last week for the first time this year, so a fresh batch is out now. http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/454/65078/

    Not nearly as good as the ones you mentioned, but Bell's Oberon, Southern Tier Hop Sun, and Boulevard 80 Acre are the next in line for me.

    I dig Southern Tier's Hop Sun. I also recently enjoyed Adirondack Brewery's "Dirty Blonde", recently renamed to just "Dirty".

    Raging Bitch is a Belgian IPA, not really a hoppy wheat.

    Boulevard 80 acre, only because I have a soft spot for Nelson Hops. I also like 4Hands Contact High - Hoppy Wheat with blood orange zest.

    I'd been looking for something similar to Fortunate Islands that I can get in my area, and the closest I've found so far is Flying Dog's Sweetlife, which I think is only available on draft at this point. It's not quite as good as FI, but it's the only hoppy wheat I've found that's similar in flavor.

    Flying Dog - Raging Bitch
    Rivertowne - Hop Lace
    Weyerbacher - Camelopardalis, if you can find it
