taste of chlorine in water from newly installed kitchen faucet


We just finished our kitchen renovation that included installing a new sink, disposer and faucet. We noticed that hot water coming out of the new faucet has a strong chlorine taste. Cold water seems to be fine. Does this mean that there is some chlorine in the new faucet and/or pipes/hoses? Why is it only hot water that has this taste? How do we get rid or it?

thanks much!

Any changes in plumbing besides new faucet? For instance, did you happen to run any new water lines using PEX?

All changes were in the kitchen, i.e. from the point where the pipes are sticking from the kitchen floor.
