Default Insane head!

I brewed an APA and it turned out fantastic, the only thing is I have to leave about 1psi in the keg for it to pour only half foam, anything more than that and I get nothing but foam. Is there anything I can do and how do I keep this from happening in the future?

Recipe:
8.5 lbs 2 row
1 lb briess special roast
.5 lb Briess Victory malt

Amarillo and Cascade hops

WLP001 California Ale yeast


Thanks

How long, and what ID, is the line coming off that keg? Sounds more like an issue with your delivery setup than the recipe.

Would also be good to know about how you carbonated it, as VTBrewer posted...

We didn't change any methods or equiptment from past batches. Syphoned into out keg and held it at 30psi for about 24 hours. Then brought it down to about 8psi before pouring.

We use a picnic tap connected to a 12in hose. Worked fine in the past.
