Actually looking at my picture compared to the others, the curved vapour trails seem to come after the beam has hit, so it may be super heated warp exhaust, created by the phaser passing through it.
It's easier to see in slow motion, though; the beam itself is following a curved path prior to impact. More importantly, the effect is also noticeable AFTER the ship has dropped out of warp.
Hmm, I wonder if some of that new 'advanced' weaponry is something like a laser painter, dotting the hull with something we can't see polarising a spot in it, the phaser arcing between the two. A lightning bolt of a sort as someone else suggested.
