Top Radiator Hose???

My car (EL IL6) gets a bit hot when not moving due to the radiator not flowing very well, which is getting done on the 27th (new unit). My question is what does it mean if the top hose is hell hard when the car is hot? Is this the sign of a stuck thermo?? Also i noticed heaps off coolant going into the side reserva via the bleeder hose, which comes out of the thermo housing. You can see it gushing in there where the hose connects to it (top left corner).

Thanks guys!
