if we're going to call for this much pre (instead of getting it in) then this is the type of flop we want to stack off on.
335 would be worse
K89 would be worse.
My line, personally would be to raise to 2.8-3.0 preflop. flat the 3bet then check call on this flop.
at that point since the pot would be smaller I MIGHT consider folding to a jam but I also might call. in your situation the pot is exponentially bigger due to your bigger preflop raise and so I think calling off is fine. if you have reads that they are scared/tight then folding is also fine.
I know to THINKING players it seems like the villain jamming QQ+ here is so dumb because it loses value and so the villain can't have it. I think that a lot of players are dumb and so his range is weighed towards QQ, KK and AK. however AA understands there are not really bad cards and won't usually jam. so facing a range of QQ, KK and AK on that flop and you're good to call off.
if you add in AA to that range it's slightly -EV but if you just add back 1 semi bluff combo with a random flush draw such as A5cc then it's back to a call. basically if he ever has a bluff or semi bluff....even 1 combo then it's ok to call.
luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity
