2015 Limited 2.4 L. On a hose coming out the right side of the engine (if you were facing it with the hood up). It's pooling on something underneath as well.

Looks like it goes to heater core, hard to tell size from the pic.

Ok probably top radiator hose.I'd get rid of the squeeze clamp and replace it with a good radiator clamp. Just don't over tighten it.

In the interim, might want to squeeze the clamp and turn it 90 degress on the hose and if possible back maybe 1/8", just to get it out of the indentation caused by the clamp.

Thank you both and @LF18JG! (y)

Looks like bottom radiator hose. That's quiet common and is an extremely small leak but needs attention like suggested a new clamp.

Definitely fixing asap, I've been reading about tension clamps vs. worm/jubilee clamps (and how these might cut into the hose overtime due to weather changes expanding the hose). Any personal opinion or preference on either?

On marine craft double clamps are often used. If there is room, just add a narrow clamp like above. Wash the area to check if the leak has been stopped.

On the Hueys, the mechanic used to either change the complete hose or if the hose was long enough, they would cut about 2 inches off the end, clean the pipe and re-connect the hose.

More likely than not you will need to clean up that end of the hose or replace it. Those deposits are also on the inside of the rubber and will not seal right unless it's cleaned up.
