$2 NLHE 6-max: TPTK on a monotone flop vs min-raising LAG
This hand came up in a session last week, while I was being sweated by figaroo2. We both were a bit lost in the hand when villain min-raised the turn.
Villain had been min-3-betting preflop on occasion with a variety of hands (strong PPs, weak suited Ax hands, suited connectors), and postflop his main weapon also seemed to be the min-raise when faced with a decent bet.
This made it rather hard for me to put him on an accurate range, so when the hand played out like this:

On the turn, he could have been doing this with a made flush, or he could imo also have been doing this with a naked A♣
or weaker K. Maybe an offsuit K with the Q♣
? Or does he have something else in his range here?
It was a difficult spot but the min-raise feels so ridiculous that I had to call.
On the river we improve to beat practically everything that's not a flush, but he's still repping the flush.
On the other hand, this guy was reasonably aggro, so maybe he had the lone A♣
and/or rivered a two-pair, thinking to extract value from our hand (that doesn't look like a made flush)?
I'm wondering what range I'm supposed to be putting him on here, both on the turn and on the river, and if I should have done anything differently in the hand.
