A reasonable reaction!

I've not had this particular sequence of moves before, even though I have played many games starting 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. e5.

Since the centre is blocked, both sides have a wide choice of plans and moves.
It's hard to decide which is best when there are no forcing variations to analyse.

My experience tells me that the advance by White to h5 will be useful as it prevents Black playing either ...h5 or ...Ng6.
I'm not trying to predict Black's next move(s) at this point.*

*apart from Ba6, which is undoubtedly coming sometime.
