If it's chlorine, it will be its most noticeable in the burning-band-aid burps (tks Sacc). Also, I get an awful hit of plastic when I taste beer that's been sitting in my picnic tap line. I just dump the first ounce of the session.
Are you using beer line or generic pvc?

It's a ball-lock cobra assembly from AHS. I assume it's 3/16" beer line.

I've noticed vinyl tubing usually clears over time as it completely dries out. An acid wash (vinegar, Starsan) is sometimes needed to remove mineral crusting left over from some cleaners.
