Persistent Head

I'm enjoying a pint of Your Sister's Mustache right now. One thing that I noticed is that the head retention on this beer is very good. I know that adding a little wheat to your beer is supposed to aid in head retention, and I neglected to mention that I had a secret ingredient in the mash--6 ounces of wheat pasta (it's a long story), but I doubt if that was enough to give this beer the head it has. Does rice aid in head retention as well?

By the way, this beer is all sterling hops. They have a distinctive flavor. I like them, but they seem a little overwhelming--I might reduce the quantity or boil time for the next batch of YSM.
