There is so much CO2 in solution that when there is a sudden pressure release it wants to come out of solution (especially when it is warm). When you want to drink beer that is over carbonated just cool it to 33F and when you open it crack the cap very slowly so a small pressure release is heard and let it bleed off slowly. When you don't hear it any more you can remove the cap and pour down the side of a chilled glass very slowly. Stop if it foams too much in the glass and set the bottle down gently and let them both release the CO2 for a couple of minutes. You can then pour more in the glass. The above usually works well.
