Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh I do like strong hop flavours. Some of my favourite beers are American IPA purely because of the huge hop thwack.

However, in the UK, when cascade hops first appeared they were so startlingly floral that every brewer under the sun started experimenting with them. One brewery (roosters) even based their entire range on only using cascades. Trouble is it all got a bit same-y and everyone got a bit fed up with the ubiquity of them. So a dash of cascades now and then is okay, but much more than that and I really don't want to know.

In the british market it was just a case of overkill.
