Did you bleed the system after installing the new hose?  Raise the front
wheels off the ground and turn the steering wheel from stop to stop rapidly
several times with the engine running.

Foaming Pentosin usually is a sign of the system sucking air.  Did you use
new O rings and torque the banjo bolts to spec?   If so, you could have a
failing seal in the pump.
