Unable to get the hot water hose off under sink.

I recently changed out my sink faucet and noticed that there is a small leak on my hot water line, but I can't figure out how to get this hose off. Is there some trick to it? I've attached two photos, one showing where the leak is coming from and the other showing how it's attached at the wall.
Thanks.

The hose is integrated into the valve, so the valve will need to be replaced.
I've only seen a valve like this once, I think it was push-on.
At the back of the valve, there should be a ring that you push-in (squeeze it with even pressure in the direction of the front).
A Sharkbite removal tool could help. The tool is a simple horseshoe shaped piece of plastic that will apply even pressure.

Thanks for the answer, it's what I was afraid of.
That means I need to turn the water off for the whole house to replace that doesn't it?

Like was mentioned.... that is a push-on valve. Probably a Flow Tite. You grab the valve turn it counterclockwise while keeping constant outward pressure. It will eventually screw off.
