Are you sure that's the only bad hose? Is it tightened on properly?

Sometimes when the hose bursts like that you'll have some puddle type build ups in the undercarriage. That might be what you're seeing on the ground. I'd definitely check the other hoses though.

How full did you top off the reservoir. If the level got too high at operating temperature then it would run out the overflow tube.

How many mileage you have on your car? Even though you are from florida according to your profile, that oil cooler line known for corroded. Check that out when you are underneath of your car.

Just V/C gasket, spark plugs ,

you will need new upper manifold gasket once youve taking the manifold apart and tube of silicone.

shouldnt need to touch anything else or take anything else apart.

it means you have a pin hole in the hoses , its squirting probally on the manifolds and burning off, thus the smell of anti freeze.

see if your local mechanic can do a pressure test on the radaitor,

its a pump that forces 15psi of air in the radaitor, whereever the leak is, it will find its way out and that will be your culprit
