Default Coolant Reservoir problem

Wasn't quite sure where to put this question, but this seems like the right place. I just finished a timing belt job on my 05 WRX and everything was running cool until it started leaking. The leak is coming from the bottom hose of the coolant reservoir. It's torn so I'll have to replace it.

My question is: Does anyone have any tips or tricks to replace that hose without having to drain all the coolant out? Draining everything seems to be the only logical solution at this point.

I figured as much but thought I'd give it a shot to see if anyone has gotten creative. If I think of something crazy that works then I'll share lol but I doubt it
