Brewer: Left Hand Brewing
Style: American IPA
Back in 2011, to support folks in the armed forces, several craft breweries banded together to start the Hops for Heroes charity. Each year, participating breweries make an IPA that's aged on untreated Louisville Slugger baseball bats (the wood is maple, if you're curious), with all proceeds earmarked for a different organization. (The beneficiary for 2015 is Soldiers' Angels.) As for the beer, Left Hand's coppery Homefront IPA is a hit, smacking you with pine, grapefruit, and orange peel — zest is added right before the beer finishes fermenting.
