Thanks for the update, Kai. I find this a very interesting topic!

Nyakavt, since I hadn't had any Miller in at least 4 months and didn't taste either one before the test, I could not directly or immediately say which one was from a bottle or a can... what I was able to do was put them in order as to which ones tasted the exact same... ie the two glasses that were from cans were together and the two glasses that were from bottles were together. Try it and you'll see what I mean. Thats what kind of surprised me, I liked the extra bitterness of the can. The bottles are cleaner... softer might be a better word for it?
Oh ok, I didn't realize you did them all together. This is just as good as a triangle, even a little more difficult since you had to pair down the like beers. Really want to try this now.
Last night I made a pale ale that was sort of moderately hop bursted. All the bittering was done within the last 20 minutes and the latest additions were at 2 and 1 minutes. I'll bet it has a nice aroma.
There's IPA's made with this technique- all late additions. Wish I could find the link...
I hope to finally get started on a book I've been talking to Brewers Publications about.
It's about time.
I'd say. Let me know if you want or need a ghost writer.
Not worth it. For reasons stated above. These probably will be bought by new brewers, who will abandon them after several uses.
