Take a look at the wine glass bip in the scenes folder. This shows how you should set up any model that has liquid in a container. You'll need separate surfaces for the outer part of the container, the top of the liquid, and one where the liquid and container meet.

Then you adjust IOR values of the glass and liquid surfaces. Can use solid glass for the outer container and IOR would be 1.5. Use the liquid material for the top surface of the liquid and (for water) set the IOR to 1.33. Then use the dielectric material for the surface that represents the interface between the container and liquid. Set the IOR to 1.33 and the "IOR Out" to 1.5.
