I see the difference here. My lines are picking up tons of beer though, and it is clear as hell in the there (though i can see some bubbles coming out of the solution). If there were a kink i would guess the line would be full of foam too. It only becomes foam once it leaves the tap and hits the glass. I may go back to my regular dip tube with a hop debris filter for the next batch if this continues after I've left this at pressure a bit longer to see if it clears.

I’d remove, disassemble, and inspect the tap before replacing the dip tube. If it is good I’d work my way backwards: remove and clean lines, remove and clean QD, remove and clean poppet, etc. until I found a smoking gun. It could be the dip tube but I’d work my way back to eliminate everything else.

Good call. Really want to avoid taking the lid off of the beer and expose it to air/contaminants.
