Fairly standard spot and figured I'd get some input on creative ways to play this hand.

There are a ton of different lines I can take here. I could check/call, check/raise and donk. Regardless of the flop, I can do a lot of different things on the turn. The only thing I can't do is check/fold.
Villain is a 21/18 pretty decent reg. Aggressive postflop. Has higher-than-average 2- and 3-barreling frequencies. Does not go to showdown much. Raises flop a ludicrous amount (32%) but I only have 1.5k hands on him and I suspect I have a sample size issue there so take that value with a grain of salt, although I think it's fair to assume that it's still high.
His c-bet is 71%.
My default line here is to c/c, c/c, c/c, or bet the river if he checks back the turn. I think an argument for donking the flop hoping to induce a bluff raise may have some merit. Thoughts?
